I'd like to upgrade to the latest and greatest NetBSD now in
anticipation of the final release. The install documentation suggests
that I need to have boot floppies or a bootable cd-rom to do this.
Unfortunately I need to do this from a remote location. Even if I
were at the computer, it has no floppy or cd-rom drives and I'd like
to avoid the messiness of removing the server from the rack and
attaching a drive.
So... can I upgrade from 1.6 to 2.0 without using removable media?
I've grabbed the files in
but am hesitating to try anything.
If it is possible to do what I want to do, what steps should I take?
Thanks for the help.
