Aha, got it! Thanks. I DL'd the package and found the instructions as you said.
I'm pretty sure I can do it once I really delve into it today, much like riding a bike after not having ridden one for years.
Looking back now, I remember it was a matter of getting my server paths correct in the config-inc.php. Nice to know you have install services in case but I really want to learn. I promise not to ask any questions like "how do I turn my computer on?"
I'm going to update vB to v4.2 first though and backing up my db before and after.
