Further questions---

- Do I then run "configure" after the update has been performed?

- I see that there are three entries under "version" in the "package  
properties": self, remote, and installed. I take it that "installed"  
is the initially installed version; self is the current version,  
taking into account various updates; and "remote" is the version  
that's on the i-installer server.

Thanks again for any advice on this.
