To upgrade you need to use a fresh version of /stand/sysinstall, not
whatever ancient verson happens to be in /stand.  For example, old
versions didn't know how to install XFree86 4.x.  The best way to do
this is to download the install floppies for the version you want to
update to, and boot those.
