/i/ Image Files - Upgrade APEX (3,2 to 4.2)

Currently Being Moderated
Pretty much all I have done with APEX is installed 3.2 in Banner DB about 2
years ago - our developers take it and run with it from there. We are finally
doing some upgrades and one of the things the developers want is to go to APEX
4.2. In looking at the install, it is very similar to the 3.2 - and there is a
/i/ paramater that is recomended to be /i/. This looks to be matching an entry in
http.conf that has /i/ and then the directory for the images files. I have
multiple instances in our Test Environment that use this. When I install/upgrade
to 4.2, I am supposed to copy the images from the APEX Home to the /i/ directory
defined in the http.conf file. This will overlay (though i will back it up
first) the current images that were from 3.2. I am assuming this will have a
negative effect on the instances that I am not installing APEX 4.2 in right
Is there a way to define an alternate /i/ directory. I thought about createing
an entry something like /i42/ and using that as my 4.2 directory and in place of
/i/ in the installation but the installation seemed to emphasize using /i/. I
may be confusing things also as I do not work with this that much once I hand it
over to the developers but any hints/thoughts/ideas are much appreciated.
