a couple of hundred is a bit ecsessive.  I would expect ~10MB tops.
you are running a 2.2.x kernel I presume?  apt may have barfed on that if you
were running a 2.0 or a 2.1 kernel.  the new libc6.xxx with potato requires a
2.2 kernel.

else. .... I think we're all outa luck on this one.  I know i've racked brains
on it (even if the rantings of the brain have not been posted to the list)
is it possible to do a full clean reinstall of slink and then try upgrading that
to potato?
