Upgrading using the alternate CD/DVD

Use this method if the system being upgraded is not connected to the Internet.

Download and burn the alternate installation CD.

Insert it into your CD-ROM drive.

A dialog will be displayed offering you the opportunity to upgrade using that CD.

Follow the on-screen instructions.

If the upgrade dialog is not displayed for any reason, you may also run the following command using Alt+F2: gksu "sh /cdrom/cdromupgrade"

Or in Kubuntu run the following command using Alt+F2: kdesu "sh /cdrom/cdromupgrade"
