where can i find simple instructions for upgrading to
a new major
version? im running 4.10 right now and want to change
to 6.0--why not? heh--but the installation page in the
handbook just talks about doing it from
scratch. and the entire "upgrade' section of the 6.0
release notes just says 
"Source upgrades to FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE are only
supported from FreeBSD 5.3-RELEASE or later. Users of
older systems wanting to upgrade 6.0-RELEASE will need
to update to FreeBSD 5.3 or newer first, then to
FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE. Important: Upgrading FreeBSD
should, of course, only be attempted after backing up
all data and configuration files." but doesnt say how
to really do it.

same with the 5.x release notes. im willing to do this
in two step, from 4.10 to 5.4 and then to 6.0, if that
is neccessary.

my laptop doesnt have a CD drive of a floppy drive, so
i want to do it over the network but i need simple
instructions if someone can help.

thank you!
