	I recently upgraded from slackware 3.0 (linux 1.2.13) to Debian
(linux 2.0.6) and still have both resident on my host.  It is therefore
possible.  Following the Debian instructions, I used fdisk and started
all over in a fresh partition.  This was not easy.  In hindsight, I believe
that it was safe but not necessary to start fresh.  I believe that it
can be done much more simply using the slackware environment.

	If you or others are interested further, please email me direct,
so we don't use list bandwidth.
