I've got a machine here running 7.2 which I want to upgrade to 8.0 but
looking at the root slice it is woefully small:

$ df -h
Filesystem    Size    Used   Avail Capacity  Mounted on
/dev/ad4s2    190M    146M     29M    84%    /
devfs         1.0K    1.0K      0B   100%    /dev
/dev/ad4s4    129G     15G    104G    12%    /usr
devfs         1.0K    1.0K      0B   100%    /var/named/dev

I've got a CD/DVD writer on that machine along with a 100MB ethernet
connection to my desktop.

How do I go about upgrading it? Dump/restore and change the partition

Any suggestions gratefully received.
