Upgrading by cvsuping all the way from 3.2 to 5.2.1 is likely to take a long time, and as far as I know should not be done in one step. Seriously, you'll save yourself a lot of trouble by just installing the newer release clean and restoring whatever it is you need (such as home directories) from a reliable backup. - P -- Peter N. M.
