I've done my upgrade in another way at home. Booted with the LiveCD,
mounted my target partition and moved everything from the root
filesystem into a directory called 'Backup' (cd /Mount/GoboLinux;
mkdir Backup; mv * Backup).

After unmounting the partition, started the Installer, making sure
that the 'format partition' checkbox was NOT selected. After the
system's installation was complete, it was just a matter of slowly
moving ancient packages to /Programs and doing a SymlinkProgram.
