I finally got my (street legal) dtivo turbonet, extraction, etc. all running just how I like it. Now 2.5.2 looms - it was installed last night on my non-networked system.

I have /var/hack backed up, and have cpio'd the entire / tree to an NFS backup just in case.

Once the upgrade hits I'm guessing from what I've read that I need to remove my hard drive and attach to a PC again (don' t have a serial connection) then run the kill_initrd script and then the turbonet install script in order to get the system back to a state in which I can reapply all the hacks.

Does this sound about right or am I missing something? Anything else I should do to get ready for the hammer to drop?? :-)
