But how am I supposed to upgrade my mirror? :-)

I didn't think about the fact that the second stage hasn't (and
obviously can't have) started at this point.  That does make it harder
for little gain.

The NOC is a half mile from the office, and I had to go back down the
street to burn CDs - it was a good thing I'd already copied FC1 to my
workstation, as the mirror OS drive was dead (for anyone trying to use
mirror.hiwaay.net, it'll go down again for a bit shortly - I've got a
different set of drives to use for the OS, so I need to re-install, and
it has a slooow CD-ROM drive).

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
