Thanks for that.
For some reason (sorry I didn't record the error messages) I got into
some weird menu loop in sysinstall when I tried to upgrade. So in
the end, I just mounted the installation disk, found a directory
in which there was an install.sh that looked like it would do the
right thing. It did the right thing. The only problem was that I
forgot to restore my old /etc/passwd before rebooting. As a
consequence I couldn't ssh in, and so I had to lug an old monitor
across the room and clear desk space for it, so that I could log on
to the console.
