I'm about to do this, but I've opted for a clean install, as others have suggested - but with a twist. I've installed an additional drive the same size as the original (80GB) - I'm going to install on the new drive, transplant data as needed from the old drive, and when I'm happy with everything, use gmirror to turn both drives into a little RAID-1 plex. I'm also trying to do it remotely, with ssh access to the distant box and one right next to it, and a null-modem cable between them to give me serial console access during the upgrade. If it works I'll detail the steps here, as I wasn't able to find a quick and easy guide to this process anywhere.
