Seriously, that Worked For Me. It wasn't a big deal.
However, as usual, "It depends": If you're running LVM or EVMS, you'll
need the appropriate updated user-space toolset. If you're *booting* off
an LVM or EVMS volume, it becomes much harder, I think.
Converting to udev is an additional step, and caused me a lot more
work than the basic 2.6 upgrade (mostly getting my head around it, and
converting from usbmgr).
The irony is that Bill Gates claims to be making a stable operating
system and Linus Torvalds claims to be trying to take over the
world. -- seen on the net
