problem with slink --> potato

I'm trying to upgrade from slink to potato. Most of the packages are
upgraded, but there is about 190MB worth of stuff that gets hung up. I
tried doing 'dpkg -i' on the package it fails on to see what the problem
is and here is what I get:

mustang:/var/cache/apt/archives# dpkg -i
(Reading database ... 75638 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking libsane (from libsane_1.0.1-1999-10-21-3_alpha.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing libsane_1.0.1-1999-10-21-3_alpha.deb (--install):
 trying to overwrite `/usr/lib/sane/libsane-apple.la', which is also in
package sane
dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)
Errors were encountered while processing:

Any ideas?
