     I have never tried to upgrade from 8.04LTS to 10.04LTS, and I have 
never seen an email on this list saying it went fine with no problems. 
Most that I have seen were people who had serious problems and wind up 
loading 10.04LTS from a LiveCD.

     So please if you had no serious problems upgrading, please let this 
list know. Thank You!
