	Makes sense, thanks.  I'm at 5.4 and 5.5 everywhere so the
	next step is to move to 6.   I'm only a bit surprised that
	things went to well with 5.5.  (But then FBSD has only 
	crashed one time in ten years, :-), and that speaks volumes.


	PS:  Any big gotchas in goingfrom 5.5 -> 6.1???  Kris?
	     Anybody??  -g
