True. But I did keep my existing system - I was pleasantly surprised. 
The reinstall just overwrote a few things like /etc/hosts and prob other 
things that I dont know about but my /home was under / as one partition 
and it was all OK as I didnt 'initialise' the disk before 
reinstallation. And a subsequent apt-get goes fine. Actually this is the 
time to probably move from stable to testing for me.

If I had another PPC to build one on or could have got a kernel from 
somewhere that would have been great. Anyhow I am now running with the 
stock 2.4.18 powermac kernel and I have just rsynced down the benh 
2.4.22 and compiled it. About time to upgrade to XFree 4.2 as well maybe :-)
