While that is a good target, it is not possible to achieve. Before upgrading from oldstable to stable you must read the release notes and modify your configuration appropriately. Part of the release notes for Squeeze was migrating from device names to labels or uuids. While udev and other changes in the kernel have caused more systems to show the non-deterministic nature of the kernel device names, and thus forced Debian (among others) to use labels and uuids in the installer, it has been a problem on certain configurations for about a decade, maybe longer. Now, moving between 6.0.0 and 6.0.1 shouldn't have been a problem, but I suspect you actually would have had issues rebooting your 6.0.0 system even without the 6.0.1 updates, since you didn't have your fstab in order. -- Boyd Stephen Smith Jr. ,= ,-_-. =. firstname.lastname@example.org ((_/)o o(\_)) ICQ: 514984 YM/AIM: DaTwinkDaddy `-'(. .)`-' http://iguanasuicide.net/ \_/
