Hi, Alessandro,
	I did the update from F8.  No problem.  But I also made the backup just
in case.  However I never needed it.

	However on my wife's system I never got f10 to work.  It is an older
IBM desktop and the APIC is not present, so F10 would load, but when you
logged in, it would never come up.  I tried several of the suggestions,
but ran out of patience and went back to F8 for the time being.  If
someone knows a real working means to avoid the APIC issue, that would
help...

Regards,
Les H
