Preupgrade 8->10, fails



Greetings;

I googled for and found the preupgrade stuff, figuring I could goto 9 and then 
10, but 9 is not a choice presented.

So I go for 10, and eventually it tells me that there is not sufficient space 
to download the install image in the /boot partition.  Of course there isn't, 
when I re-installed 8 after a drive failure, the fscking partitioner would 
not allow me to setup a boot partition over 200 megs.  I did have it set for 
500 earlier.  So I quit the preupgrader, deleted a good sized stack of 
kernels etc in that partition and now have 92 megs free.  But that is still 
not enough.

Is there an argument I can give, or a file I can edit to put this scratchpad 
area someplace else?  After all, there are about 1.3 terrabyte's of drives 
here.

Thanks.
