That worked, thanks ! I am using Smart and once I changed the Smart 
channels to point to 5.4 instead of 5.3, Smart got the latest updates, 
installed them, and now I am a 5.4 user. I guess if I was using Software 
Update it would have automatically picked up the changes, but I find 
Smart a much easier and more informative program to use.
