I am preparing to test the ability to upgrade from 6.06.2 directly to 
hardy, without the incremental steps between.

Dapper Install
    I have no Dapper install disks handy, so I took a breezy install 
disk and installed CLI-only
    I edited the sources.list file to comment out the cd, enabled all 
repo's, and replaced all instances of "breezy" with "dapper"
    I upgraded from breezy to dapper via apt-get update and apt-get 
    I added xubuntu to the CLI-only with apt-get install xubuntu-desktop

Hardy Install -- phase one
    Manually edit sources.list , replacing "dapper" with "hardy"
    Upgrade via CLI with sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    Report any issues
*****should sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude dist-upgrade be tested 
as well?

Hardy Install -- phase two
    Format and re-install per "Dapper Install" (see above)
    Upgrade via upgrade tool (is this available to test yet?)
    Report any issues

Test system:
    Pentium II 350 MHz
    384 MB Ram
    15 GB hard drive
