Crashed within sight of the finishing post!!
Everything appeared to work!
"apt-get upgrade" found what it needed on the first 4 of the 8 DVDs and
ran to completion without problems;
Installing the new kernel, etc. worked.
The reboot worked.
"apt-get dist-upgrade" worked OK until I ceased to watch it and took a
break (from watching). I thought that stopping at the point where I was
asked to insert my second DVD was safe.
It was not. When I came back from my break, I could not open the CD-
drive to insert the next DVD.
Total disaster. It appears that you cannot interrupt the "dist-upgrade"
and come back later.
Back to Square One. Lucky that my Debian Lenny still boots!
