The only local file which might be involved in your backup is .xinitrc. But the change is only for non-US keyboards.

I have a flash drive frugal install of v2.3, and wondered what the easiest way is, to upgrade it to 2.4? Can I just use the "install to pen drive" entry in the menu and choose the 'upgrade' and 'from Web' options, or is there a 'better' way?

Many thanks - great job as always :) (Good to see rsync included in the new version!)

I usually just d/l the iso and unpack it and replace the KNOPPIX image and maybe minirt.gz and linux24.

After getting the iso just do a

Code Sample
mount dsl-2.4.iso /mnt/test -o loop

You'll find the iso unpacked in /mnt/test. Replace the files on your flash drive and you're upgraded!
