	As all of the equipment is new, I would like to, if at all possible, to
install 4.0.9 from scratch on one of the new machines and import the DB
data from the old 3.6.6 installation.

	I'd rather not migrate the 3.6.6 installation to a new machine and then
have to upgrade to the 4.0.9 version on that machine. Seems like we
should be able to simplify the procedure.
