soon .. all VPS servers to VPS members..
individual machine images will be not upgraded. If you wish to take
advantage .. follow these steps:

1. back up any data on your current vm you want to keep and transfer it to
another machine
2. shutdown your vm
3. use the 'x' option to do a fresh image copy.
4. boot your new machine
5. restore from your back up

Another benefit of upgradating particuarly for the 'console-less' images is
that you will now gain console access by default.
