   Hi.  I have an i386 machine, that I installed 2.0_RC4 onto
from an ISO.  Then, I checked out and built -current.  However,
trying to install into / caused problems.  I first tried to
boot with a -current kernel, but that seemed to get occasional
errors fsck'ing the disks.  So, I tried running the 2.0_RC4
kernel to build and install userland, but the install errored
out part-way through.

   I suspect the machine is now lost, and I'll have to reinstall.
But, that's not too bad.  But the next question is, how should I
do this upgrade to a home-built -current next time to avoid
these problems?

   Any assistance appriciated.

                           - Chris
