If you wish to upgrade to a new major release, the best thing is
to install from scratch, removing also c:\linux, if you use UMSDOS.
I know, this is a crude solution, but muLinux is full-configured,
so you lose relatively nothing.

If you only wish to upgrade some addon, you have two solution:

        1) setup -f XYZ from=/path/to/XYZ (XYZ is the name of the addon)
        2) use the "upgrade" script. It attempt to upgrade selectively
           only the files that are changed or new.
