Re: 3.1 upgrade or install?
I agree with the "fresh install" vote, over the "upgrade" vote.
I've done it a bunch of times, and it always works best.
One thing that works nice is to NOT format your /home partition
(and, say, "/web" partition if you have that kind of thing):
#1 - On your old sys, put everything you want to save in /home
#2 - When installing from the CD, keep the partitions the same,
just assigning them the same mount-points again.
#3 - Except when disklabel is asking the mount points for partitions,
tell it "none" instead of /home
The OpenBSD CD will format the other partitions but NOT /home,
which it doesn't need to start up again.
Then you can add it back to /etc/fstab manually, and everything
you need is right there, including your SSH keys and whatnot.
(You have to "adduser" inthe same order, of course, to match the UID.)
