I have completely upgraded my system from 2.0.5 to 2.1 using
the install disk "update" function.  (BTW, Jordan, extremely 
user friendly and easy to upgrade - bravo! - though I have this 
suggestion:  tell people to just tar their entire /etc 
directory and save it somewhere else before upgrading).  A 
friend is also running 2.0.5 but has no CD-ROM and only a 28.8 
PPP connection so an upgrade would be quite slow.  I was 
wondering if there would be any problem, in theory, with just 
compiling a 2.1 kernel on my system and installing the kernel 
only on the other system.  Would that gain any advantages over 
what he's running now?  Would there be any potential problems 
with that?
