Gene, I've done 2 FC4 to FC5 upgrades recently. One blew up. One took
about 9 hours, but completed fine. I have found that one must be
careful when upgrading from FC4 to anything else, primarily because of
the package shuffling between what was included with FC4 and what was
moved to extras for FC5.
