It won't change the kernel version on you, but it will upgrade to the
latest debian version of that particular image.

For instance, If you've installed kernel-image-2.4.18-1-686_2.4.18-11,
that will be upgraded to kernel-image-2.4.18-1-686_2.4.18-12.2.

Try a dry run with "apt-get -s dist-upgrade" to see for yourself what
will happen.
