Our DB servers are separate from our fileservers.

I think what Kevin was asking was in the transition from 1.2.10 on 
solaris/sparc to 1.4.5 on debian/x86, there will be times when there is a 
mixed environment where all the DB servers are not running the same OS or 
even on the same architecture. Is this OK or should all the DB servers be 
upgraded at once (which is logistically more difficult).
