That's sad, but at least this gives you the opportunity to outshine your predecessor, try and document the changes he made from the "vanilla" installation of 4.3.

I do believe that this system should be upgraded, but, doing so without first doing some initial research would be a mistake.. it may be running 3rd party software from the ports tree or things they manually compiled (..or wrote) and a premature upgrade could theoretically break things and leave you in a awkward situation of trying to restore functionality of what is essentially a "black box" to you.

I fear that you may have bitten off more than you can chew, I would not want to be in your situation.. but we'll do our best to help you with any questions you may have, but 4.3 is generations ago and it may time time for us to formulate something resembling a response.

Good luck!
