1) you can't run a newer than about January kernel with -1.0 bins/libs,
at least most of them. You need at least new kernel libs, new mount

2) the scsi problem is due to bugs/oversights in the old sbic.c driver.
The new one (few days old) is still buggy, too, so you just might want 
to hang on with the -1.0 kernel, which is working fine for you as you

Nearly everything. :-)

The upgrade procedure is somewhat complicated, but I think installing
new binaries on a new disk/partition, then booting the kernel would be 
the method of choice.

As for inplace upgrade... there is a receipt posted at regular intervals,
in current-users, I think.
