Did this.  SUCCESS!!!!  Upgraded from 1.3.1

Kicking myself for not starting script, but not realy needed.  Discs 2
and 3 inserted once each.

apt-get dist-upgrade fell over two times.  dpkg --configure -a was then
run until it fell over.  Then back to apt-get dist-upgrade until it fell
over again etc, to completion.  A good result considering the upgrade
skipped two releases.

dpkg --audit was run and it was clean.

I am about to write some simple 'cook-book' documentation which will be
part of the booklet which goes with my Debian CDs.  Would you like to look
at this?
