I am currently running FreeBSD 4.10-STABLE and am looking to upgrade to 6.x
I plan to build a fresh install on a new drive and then copy all the data
from the old drive to the new one.
I want to try and use as many of my existing config files as possible to
lesten the amount of system reconfiguration I will need to do to get it back
to its existing working state.
My concern is whether or not I will be able to copy the files in /etc/,
paticularly major ones such as /etc/passwd, from my 4.10 installation to the
new 6.x installation.
Is this possible? Or would I need to run some sort of conversion on these
files to make them 6.x compatible?
Any advice/help will be much appreciated.
