[PLUG] Update strategy: RH6.2->RH7.1

I have an old machine (i486 on a PCI board, 80 MB ram) now running RedHat 
6.2.  I want to add a Maxtor 7200 rpm 40 GB drive to it.  In order to 
take advantage of the drive?s speed on this old computer, I am adding a 
Maxtor ATA controller.

At the same time I want to update it to RedHat 7.1.  I am guessing that  
the controller is more likely to be supported by RH 7.1, than 6.2.

My question is what sequence I should take to accomplish this?  Should I 
update to 7.1 first, then add the new hardware, or should I add the 
hardware, and then update the OS?

All suggestions will be appreciated.
