Bug#547220: general: Lenny Upgrade Documentation Typos

Package: general
Severity: minor

While doing my first dist-upgrade I noticed a few typos that 
may cause some confusion to other users.

In the document referenced at:

Section 4.3. Manually unmarking packages
contains the following line:

aptitude unmarkauto $(dpkg-query -W 'kernel-image-2.6.*' | cut -f1)

I believe this should be:

aptitude unmarkauto $(dpkg-query -W 'linux-image-2.6.*' | cut -f1)

Here is the output when I run each of these commands:

ns3:~# dpkg-query -W 'kernel-image-2.6.*'
No packages found matching kernel-image-2.6.*.
ns3:~# dpkg-query -W 'linux-image-2.6.*'
linux-image-2.6.18-4-powerpc	2.6.18.dfsg.1-12etch2
linux-image-2.6.18-5-powerpc	2.6.18.dfsg.1-13etch6
linux-image-2.6.18-6-powerpc	2.6.18.dfsg.1-24etch4

Also, in Section 4.5.6. Minimal system upgrade
it says to run:

aptitude upgrade

When running this from the command line I get a deprecation warning:

ns3:~# aptitude upgrade
W: The "upgrade" command is deprecated; use "safe-upgrade" instead.
Reading package lists... Done

The upgrade does continuem but may want to update this in the docs.
