How to upgrade the OS on WCS(Linux)?

I want to upgrade my WCS to RedHat Linux 5.0.  I have burned the iso image to a cd, rebooted the WCS and find nothing happening.  Prior to rebooting, I start a SSH connection to the appliance so I figured that I would see it come up and the upgrade start but then I lose the connection.  Does anyone have any info on upgrading the OS on a WCS?  TIA

Did you burn the .iso as a bootable cd or just burn the .iso file on the cd?  Can you connect to the serial console and watch the boot?

Thanks for the reply.  I simply copied the iso to a cd.  during the reboot, I lose my console connection.  So it sounds like I am not burning the cd correctly?

I think that is it.  It needs to be burned as an image and not just a data file.  When you say console do you mean ssh session?

Yes, a SSH session.

Ok that should disconnect but a console cable connected to the back should continue to be connected.
