Put the distribution files in an accessible place and follow the
instructions below.

1)  BACKUP /ETC, BACKUP /ETC, BACKUP /ETC.  IT __WILL__ BE HOSED!!!

2)  Boot the new floppy.  Select the 'update' option.  Follow the prompts.
Make sure you MOUNT your filesystems and not NEWFS them.  Select the same
distributions you did originally and any you wish to add.

3)  Hit 'commit'.  Take note of the modified files.

4)  WHen you're dumped to a shell prompt:
	
	.  Copy services back from your backup /etc.  It's three lines
 	   long now :(
	
	.  Edit sysconfig and re-config from scratch using your old one as
	   a guide.  It's changed a bunch this time around and it's too
	   much pain to hack in the new changes. 

	.  Migrate any changes you made to rc.local.  Note that httpd is
	   no longer started from sysconfig.

5)  Reboot, recompile & reinstall your kernel, reboot again, and enjoy.
