rusty, on my system, i vied /etc/apt/sources.list and changed every
occurance of "potato" to "woody".

alternatively, you can change every occurance of "stable" to "unstable".


apt-get update
apt-get upgrade     <-- you'll need to do this like 3 or 4 times.   you'll
                        know when to stop because it'll say "no bytes

i'm pretty sure this is the instructions that henry gave me.   it took about
3 hours on a DSL line to download and configure.

good luck!
