yoyo mode

OS upgrade (to Debian 3.1) is in progress.

Current status: packages appear to have upgraded sucessfully; now to reboot.

Update 5:42pm: even though they said there's no kernel upgrade in this part of the process, something decided to overwrite the boot block anyway to force booting from the CDROM and the CDROM seems to only know how to do a fresh install. meaning this is going to take longer than I thought. bleah.

Update 7:15pm: ok, we have our old boot block back. certain other things look decidedly wonky, but we're up for now.
