Re: [K12OSN] Why 4.1.1



If I was to upgrade from 4.0 to 4.1, will I have to reassign user names and passwords?  I installed 4.1 on a seperate box from my server and I like the looks of it.  I am just dubious about starting over with configuration.  When you put the 4.1 cd in the server and it says "install or upgrade in graphic mode", does upgrade mean "upgrade" without having to start from the beginning?  Thanks!
