Slackware 12 to 12.2?


I currently have a VPS(virtual private server) that runs Slackware 12. The image was made way back in 2007, and obviously it hasn't been updated.

The version is VERY minimal, it doesn't even have all the packages from A, but I can get any I want and install as I wish.

Is there an easy way to update 12 to 12.2? Going to 13 is probably out of the question without a clean install over a network and doing it remotely, which is probably beyond my capabilities.

I can't mess with the kernel unfortunately, but I can install practically any packages.

I'm currently reading the upgrade.txt file for 12.1, but I am not sure if this will be applicable to a minimal install of 12 on a VPS. Still could have some good tips.
