Ok. Cool. My motherboard's documentation on the chipsets is kinda
vague but it looks like I have "ICH5R South Bridge" (Intel?) and
"Silicon Image PCI Chip". It's an ABIT IC7-G MOBO.

I think I'm just going to go for it. I'll let you know if I run into
any problems. Don't worry. :)

Gotcha. I'm going with Warty!

You know.... I keep meaning on looking up how to use rsync. Are you
saying that rsync can replace the updated parts WITHIN the ISO image I
already downloaded?! That would be pretty darn cool. :)
