Updating FreeBSD from 4.0 to 4.2 using sysinstall

Author: JT Smith

From BSD Today: "For people who update FreeBSD
infrequently, say to the next RELEASE version, the system installer (sysinstall) provides an 'Upgrade' option
which installs the new system over the existing one. Using this method I successfully upgraded my FreeBSD
4.0 machine to 4.2 and this article will detail the steps I followed to do this."
