  We tried to do a custom upgrade. That left dead bodies and debris all over
the place. So, we did a custom install instead. Then I began restoring from
the full backup tape I made before we started and we spent all day yesterday
getting things to work again. I'm still at it. With a bit of luck, by Monday
everything I need will again be working on all machines.
