The "Fedora" project existed for years providing extra RPMs to users of
Redhat 8 and 9 (and perhaps earlier). Prior to the release of Redhat 10
(during the beta testing, IIRC), the Fedora project and Redhat merged
to create the first joint release, Fedora Core 1. So FC1 is effectively
Redhat 10, minus a couple of packages (redhat-artwork, etc).
Upgrading from Redhat 9 to FC1 is possible via apt-get (as I mentioned),
but it does require a fast connection.
