Wait!! Hold this upgrade!! Hehe sorry all but i was about to try
the upgrade tomorrow but i was going to use bo. What am i suppossed to
use Bo or Frozen???
Also i am going to setup a mirror on my machine but i really don't
want to mirror the whole site. I do want to mirror the 1.3 distribution
only. I will be using ftp.debian.org (i believe this is ok), so do i
mirror ftp.debian.org:/pub/debian/bo/ or /pub/debian/frozen/ ?

Dpkg does (should) make a backup copy of the original conf file
before it replaces it correct? Is this a standard that all packages
include or just a few?

So this needs to be done before i start the upgrade (via dselect)?
Will this be so even when it is released this week sometime?

I'm running 1.2 now and find it great :) I know 1.3 will be
good aswell. I'd also like to thanx all the developers, maintainers, and
everyone else for this great OS!!!!
