There's a little more to it. Between sarge and etch
we replace devfs with udev. You need to install udev and hal

linux-image and make an initrd.img with the new tools.
If you do it in the wrong order your system is unbootable.
No fun if it's far away in colocation.
I don't have hal or udev on my colocated servers, and I was able to test
an upgrade to Etch without adding them. Additionally the dist-upgrade
didn't add them and the test server survived fine. What makes you think
that udev and hal are required?
True. Had four upgrades on our machines today. All running fine - the smoke
test was also fine ;-)
