Differential upgrade is not provide, sorry. Myself, I cannot say
what I've really changed in this long intervall.

I think the best way is to annotate what you changed, than to
reproduce the essential part in the new release.

7r* and 6r4 are much different, also in boot scripts: pcmcia,
multi-user, cd-writer support, keymaps localtion, etc.


I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
