Well I tried the upgrade, that didn't go well.  In order to perform  
the upgrade I had to move up to Lenny, that broke everything.  Since I  
already have the new install working, does anybody know of an easy way  
to move the data from the old 1.73 VM (one big problem was it used  
Apache and not Apache2) to a new install of Freeside-2.3.0 on Ubuntu  
10.04.  Basically I just need to do a data migration.  Anything that  
doesn't move, I can re-configure if I just know what doesn't move.
