No, I think it should, however I haven't upgraded my Planet machine
since about the time RH9 came out. It runs GigaStudio all the time so I
hardly ever get to boot it into Linux anymore.

I would suggest using Synaptic and looking in that app for the right
names. Please remember that you'll never get upgrade further than
Fernando is ready to take you, so it really depends on what's available
in the Planet's library of RPM files.
