Hi everyone,
I am currently working with ubuntu 7.10 with loads of packages,other stuff installed.

Problem) Now i would like to upgrade it to either 8.10 or 9.04.But i'm afraid if i'll loose all the packages installed.Kindly some one tell me how to upgrade without having to re-install all earlier packages.

I've also heard of Ubuntu restore CD.What's that..?? Could that solve my issue..??


Thanks in advance..!!

from 7.10 up to 9.04 most of your existing packages will probably be no longer supported, newer versions etc....

8.04 should be where i would stop if i upgraded.
