I usually have to do updates like that on the weekends, as I can't depend on a 
3AM reboot to be up in the morning when Exec's are in. A reboot I trust, but 
not the first one after a kernel change. On a weekend I can drive in and see 
what happened if necessary and switch to a backup router.
In our main office I have 2 running side by side and I can log in to the T1 
router and change switch ports to swap them. Then a reboot on the router to 
hasten the MAC changeover. Usually 5 minutes tops.

MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
