No responders :-(
Guess I'll just have to patch each system afterwards, although I
could trawl through the patchadd script I suppose to see what if
any damage it does to the local systems files.
Just seemed a shame that you can net install a 2.6 system from
a 2.4 server but can't install patches to the image.
