There is documentation somewhere that describes how to go about upgrading your
linux dist. Basically you have to remove the packages you wish to upgrade and
install the new ones. I have heard that the new slakware is upgradable(if you
are running the newest slakware and wish to upgrade). I would back up
everything that is not slakware i.e. user files and local aps you have
installed since installing slakware, then start from scratch. The installation
is so easy now that it is just simpler to do it that way. You don't need to
fdisk /mbr if you don't want to since one of the first thing you will be doing
will be to install lilo(after installing the system). You might want to try
loadlin. I'v never used it, but I've heard good things about it.
DON'T FORGET TO SAVE XF86Config!!!
