Upgrade from Mandrake 10.0 to Mandriva LE2005 (10.2) Problems

everything fine until all seems installed and we get to splash/holding screen. Just stays there "thinking" (hourglass turning) - stayed there all night... not sure of problem or how to fix.

If early during the upgrade, there are two potential issues.
What speed did you burn the iso disks at and on what media?
Has anything chamged with the hardware on your system since your first install of Mandrake?
Could you tell us a little something about your system?

After searching online, I have managed to fix it by setting devfsd=nomount in lilo.conf. However, we are now having a different problem, which I think may be related. We have an external 56k modem (dialup - ick!), and when we try to connect via kppp, it says,
"KPPP cannot find:
Please make sure you have set up your modem device properly and/or adjust the location of the modem device on the modem tab of the setup dialogue."
I'm assuming this is something to do with the change from devfsd to udev, but have no idea what I'm supposed to do about it!

It's always the simple things that we don't think of...
