Re: slink -> potato
Strange, I've never had a hard time with a dist-upgrade when I am remote. Of
course, it's best to open a new telnet window once the upgrade is complete, and
to not do a final reboot until you are on site, since if it doesn't boot, you
are stuck. But that behavior of losing connection is generally only a problem
if you use dial-up. If you use ethernet, you won't lose connectivity unless
your connection dies.
