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
