Realized this last night when I searched through the repositories.  I 
extracted a file but have not completed the install.  I go through this each 
major release; mostly as a means to troubleshoot before I upgrade the rest of 
the families systems.  My wife's laptop is still two versions behind because I 
fear something critical will not work.  Unfortunately we have gone from a dist 
that works to one with somewhat undependable releases.
