The deadline for Red Hat Linux 9 is fast approaching. As of May 1, 2004 we will not be producing new security, bugfix, or enhancement updates for this product.

We are approaching the published end of life date for errata support for our final Red Hat Linux distribution.  We'd like to remind you of this date and the options available to you for migrating your Red Hat Linux implementations: Red Hat Enterprise Linux and the Fedora Project.

Red Hat Linux 9 distribution will reach its end-of-life for errata maintenance on April 30, 2004.  This means that as of May 1, 2004 we will not be producing new security, bugfix, or enhancement updates for this product.

There are a variety of options available for migration.  Red Hat offers Red Hat Enterprise Linux as well as the new Fedora Project.
Our Red Hat Linux Migration Resource Center can help you find the Red Hat solution best suited for your needs:

The errata support policy, as well as our current errata and advisories, are available from:
