True, but you have the CD's to fall back on... assuming you meant
upgrade via the net. Sure, that will work to a point, but it's not for
the faint-hearted at all. Just about everyone notes they have to make
tweaks here and there in order to proceed with the upgrade. Me? I am
waiting for the second bug fix release to do a fresh install. Playing my
cards close to my chest this time! You betcha. Ric
