Question How to do network upgrade?

I'm running Mandrake 10.1 Official and would like to upgrade to 2005 LE.
In the past I've always done fresh loads, but this time I am interested in upgrading rather than replacing.
I could download the ISO's and do an upgrade, but is there a way to upgrade over the internet?
Modify Urpmi.cfg?

Tips or a pointer to a relevant howto would be appreciated.

I believe this may help you because I installed LE2005 by this way.

You can download the boot.iso and burn it to cd, boot from it and choose http server or ftp server and then follow the instruction on the screen. When it askes to install or upgrade (to LE2005), choose upgrade. The next steps are the same as installation.

Just change your rpm sources to point to the 10.2 tree and then urpmi away.
