I forgot to mention this explictly; in case it wasn't immediately clear,
you must also add experimental to your sources.list.  There are

Also, if you want to help test the transition, one great way to do this
is by making a separate chroot, where you can have the regular GNOME 1.4

there you can log in with gdmflexiserver --xnest to see how the upgrade
goes.  That's how I've been testing this.

I've written a little guide on making chroot Debian systems here:
