:quick ordering point:
:reboot (single user mode if you can)
:(in other words, install the new kernel before installing the new world).
Generally speaking you do not have to reboot before doing the
installworld, but you should make sure that the system is idle
since installworld will be ripping up binaries out from under
running programs, and you should reboot after the installworld finishes.
