Is there a way to upgrade my Fedora 7 to 8 by doing an upgrade without the DVD? My computer doesn't have a DVD. I would like to do this via the Internet through a proxy style firewall. This worked fine with a recent Ubuntu upgrade but now I want to upgrade my workhorse Fedora workstation.

The short answer is yes, you can upgrade via yum. The long answer though is if your computer is at all relied on for productivity I would give this upgrade some thought. Troll this forum for a while ands see what problems people are having. I love Fedora, I want to see everyone using it and I dont want to be negative, but...I have seen smoother introductions.

As far as how to upgrade via yum I will let someone better suited answer that or you can alternatly search using key words such as "F8 upgrade."
