Yes, I have run over the handbook, I was just a bit worried about the crashing server. Thanks for the run down.

I do not have physical access to the server. Can one make installworld running in multiuser mode, if one had shut down any active daemons and locked out the users?

Thanks for any advice.

If your system gives you a login prompt then the steps to follow are
<get a ass thrashing from boss>
<get back to work> :-)


And yes u can cvsuo to current as well as stable tree. If you want to go to
stable, then use /usr/share/examples/cvsup/stable-supfile.
Do read through that file before you run it.
