Re: how to upgrade from NetBSD 3.1 to 4 ?
One thing you'll want to read up on before taking this on
(since you mentioned that this is also your mail server) is
PostFix. The default mail server on NetBSD 3.x is Sendmail, and 4.0
uses PostFix, which while a lot saner to configure and generally more
trim and fit, it is configured very differently, so you may want to
have all of your ducks in a row regarding that before you start your
upgrade and either be prepared to swim upstream and keep using
sendmail, or have a pretty good idea of what you'll need to do to
postfix to make it behave as your sendmail used to.

I read the documentation on the netbsd.org site and only suggests
one upgrade method, that is to
boot from a NetBSD 4 CD and upgrade that way.
The problem is that my broadband firewall / web server / mail server
is running NetBSD 3.1 and has
no keyboard, no monitor, and no CDROM drive. It lives in the
cupboard under my stairs. I only access
it using ssh.
Is there no other way? like put a netbsd 4 kernel on the drive and
reboot it or something
Booting from CD is going to cause quite a lot of hassle.
thanks for any help, Philip
