You do have the option of using "dd" to copy the system and then
upgrading the filesystem to ext3 in place. You could also upgrade to
a newer Ubuntu version in place. I would suggest making a complete
backup first. The KVM suggestion would also be worth trying.
If you decide to move to a newer version of Ubuntu or another
distribution, be aware that your custom toolchains may break if they
have unknown dependencies. So make sure you can validate your
development environments after the upgrade.
