Set up a spare machine, upgrade using the latest of your favorite
distribution, copy across your various system modifications, update your
bootup config so that it matches the current server, if you have a home
filesystem not on a separate hard drive then copy that across as well, take
the server down, put in the new hard drive, bring the server back up.
