	I'm guessing that by USB you mean a geekstick or thumbstick; I 
don't have F10 on one (yet, anyway). So I decided first to try putting my 
F10 DVD into my external DVD drive, as before, but connecting its USB 
cable to one of my PCs. This time, when I tried telling anaconda first to 
upgrade, it went right on, and has now installed 760 of 1033 packages, or 
so it says.

	I suspect that it helps to have a full sized monitor, which 
doesn't require me to do contortions with Alt & mouse to get to the Next 
button. Stay tuned.
