Well it shouldn't take long to learn; apart from the mounting of the
dvd image, it's about three commands (and not very tricky ones at
that). The nice thing about it, is that if it screws up, you can simply
throw away the "upgrade" and stick with what you've got.

The later. It uses the currently installed set of packages to work out
what should be installed.
