Thanks, Chris.  (Sheesh, I feel like I'm talking to myself again...)  ;-)

I normally go that route, but the optical drive on my BE/BE system croaked, 
so I thought I'd give this a shot.  If it works, it's at least an available 
option.  Thus far, the only snag I've hit is a dependency problem that I got 
past by upgrading ivtv before upgrading everything else.

If I can get the optical drive replaced in time, I will probably go the DVD-
ROM route for the Core 6 to 7 upgrade.
