Easiest to run the install script from the 4.1rc2 cdrom.
You will see the following prompt:
For INSTALL answer y to format, for UPGRADE answer n.
Just be sure to answer n to Format the target partition?
You also need to read the change log if you are going to try to use an existing backup from v3.
Many files likely in an existing backup are either changed or deprecated.
FYI, the manual instructions are not correct. You will get into trouble if trying to change an image that you are running from.
To do it manually, boot from the v4.1RC2 cdrom and then mount /mnt/hda2 and copy from cdrom to /mnt/hda2
