According to the doco I have for upgrading 6.5 to 6.5.11, you're supposed to
find some patches there that will enable you to perform the upgrade with
Software Manager instead of inst.

The disks I have for 6.5.20 don't have that directory, but they are burned
copies.  They don't have the file:///CDROM/WhatsNew/yourSystem.html file,
either, that's specified in the installation instructions....

I'm just trying to figure out how to upgrade a system from 6.5 to 6.5.20f
without hosing it up.
