      Redboot? What's that? Certainly it's got nothing to do with upgrading an

      Well, it's in there, on the page

      I found this by going to www.openslug.org, selecting the link at the top of
      that page which encouraged me to look at the OpenSlug home page, scanned the
      home page and selected the 'UsingTheBinary' link then clicked on the
      'UpgradingOpenSlugToANewRelease'. Of course I wrote it so I have some vague
      memory that it was there somewhere but I can't see any way of making it more
      obvious without making other important stuff less obvious.

      There's a lot of badly organised stuff on the wiki, but I don't think this
      is an example of it. It's pretty important that this stuff is accessible to
      new OpenSlug users and I think it is. (BTW I wouldn't do the stuff at the
      end of the page - it will destroy the configuration on your machine if you
      have changed it from the flash, in particular it will destroy the ipkg
      status file and this is bad news as ipkg upgrade will stop working.)
