RE: dist-upgrade on remote server
Whenever I did an apt-get dist-upgrade I never had a problem with doing
that. To be safe, I believe what you could do, is edit your
sources.list to woody, and then do "apt-get update" to get the newest
Then you could apt-get install ssh, and I believe it should upgrade your
version if there have been updates.
Then do a dist-upgrade and it won't touch ssh. I've had debian on my
webserver for a year or so, and installed many times on my laptop or pc,
and never had any problems with dist-upgrading.
