Another VHOST change

With my Drupal 6 installation upgraded to the latest patch level, I've decided to make an effort and move the last Drupal 4 site up to Drupal 6 by Christmas. As I commented before, this isn't an easy task, as the site has a fair amount of content that I don't want to lose, and uses features that I don't want to disable.
