I don't wanna be unpolite, but this isn't Ubuntu. A lot of changes have
been done from gNewSense 1.1 to 2.0 (based on Dapper initialy).
The Xorg files, Mesa, and many other stuff (kernel included), that makes
this upgrade almost imposible, i say that because there is the chance to
do it, but thats a lot of time and work of research that could be used
in improving the current one.

For the next upgrade i'm sure that we will have, an improved path to

In anycase, i'm sure that if you say, - Hey, can i borrow your CD drive,
i'm gonna install gNewSense 2.0 - Many comrades will say, - Sure, and
after that you can let them the gNewSense CD :) -
