 Make that  apt-get dist-upgrade, I think you'll need to do that to get some
bigger things up to potato level.  (normal upgrade won't upgrade when a
package has been split into multiple separate packages, e.g. xntp ->
ntpdate, ntp or the netkit split.  dist-upgrade will do everything it can to
upgrade as much as possible, but it does make sure nothing has broken
dependencies once it's all done.) 

 BTW, before the upgrade would be a good time to backup the whole system :)
