Is it possible to upgrade from ver 3.9 to 4.0 without downloading the whole OS?

I think you can download some floppies, I think they are three, and install from floppies or you can burn a cd40.iso to a CD (it should be a very small size).

Start the installation and then choose ``u":

(I)nstall, (U)pgrade or (S)hell?

that should do it.

That's what I remember.

Remember to check the docs with 4.0, such as the file INSTALL.i386 ...
