Thanks for making me look at the obvious :-)

I checked my log files and you are correct, the repository argument was
missing the double-quotes. This happened because I used echo from the
command line to send the arguments to the sheevaplug. (Pasting text in
puTTY seems to require a middle mouse button, which I don't have.)

I've now booted Lenny, changed sources.list to squeeze and updated
kernel and initrams-tools without problem; am busy updating everything
else now...
