Is it possible to upgrade ffom one level of the O/S to the next by using a live CD?
Say from Hardy Heron to Jaunty Jackalope.
Or is the live CD only good for a new install?

Hello,

Unfortunately, you'll need to download the Alternate CD to upgrade, you you can only officially upgrade this way from one verison to the next (Hardy -> Intrepid)

For more information, see this page

It is much better way to do a clean install anyway. Upgrades are very temperamental.
