     58'''Updating Existing Installations'''
    6259-----------
    6360Users with existing Parsix GNU/Linux installations can update their systems using APT or 2.0r0-TEST-3 CD-ROM. Updating using the Parsix CD-ROM deletes all additional installed packages. So users who have custom installed packages, should reinstall them after finishing the update process. A package diff file is saved to /root/diffpackages-xxxxxxxx-xxxx.txt that can be used to reinstall additional packages. Just use a command like the following to use the diff file, after rebooting to your new updated Parsix system:
