PMJI,

20 minutes to go from 2.4 to 2.6. No kidding it can't be done. I have
a server here still on 2.4 and am very reluctant in migrating to 2.6
due to the possible downtime to be a day or two minimum (and that is
if nothing drastic happens). I'm not even sure if I can do that. The
unimaginable hairiness of doing a 2.4 to 2.6 gives me the hibby-jibbies.

I think it's easier (IMO) to set up a whole new 2.6 server and migrate
the files there. YMMV, of course. :)

Just my $0.02.
