I have had a lot of trouble with this, ideally I would have preferred to stick 
r4 on I don't know if you remember I posted that I paid £30.00 for the DVD r4 
version but the disk was corrupt they then sent me woody r3 on CD with (I 
hope) r4 upgrade CD discs I suppose I could have got angry and said "Well 
wheres my refund? I paid for DVD but got Cd's" but I cant be bothered.

I have the CD-ROM listed as a source so I'm hoping I can plonk the (supposed) 
upgrade disk in and take it from there.

I just need to get my head around all this deselect, tasksel, dpkg and so on I 
was thinking of putting Synaptic on but that is pointless as the cram book I 
have doesn't deal with that, there is Kpackage manager installed but again I 
need to keep clear of that.
