Thanks Jacob and Mike. I've actually been mulling the option of
upgrading from 4.6, but I'm not sure which version I'd rather have. I
waited when 4.7 came out, then 4.8 . . .
My current install was built on 9/1/02 - just a version code update,
not an OS update. I almost upgraded then, but I was in the throes of
a home purchase. Not at my best, technically.
I'd welcome (and appreciate) version recommendations before I make my
next upgrade. What is generally considered the most stable release? I
see a lot of problems on this list, but not much about the useability
and stability - of course the list is supposed to be a place to get
solutions to problem though, right?
Thanks a lot for the input. I'll look for any recommendations
offered, read the FreeBSD site a bit, and run my upgrade in a few
weeks - after studying the 'correct' process again.

The more they over-think the plumbing the easier it is to stop up the drain.
