The error was in installing udev_0.068-2_i386.deb -- it complained that it
needed a kernel >= 2.6.12 to install, and promptly quit.  I assume that
the specified kernel is part of the dist-upgrade, but I cannot find a
kernel-image-2.6.1[2-9] debfile in my /var/cache/apt/archive directory.

new kernels are part of the linux-image package, that should take care of
however udev requires that 2.6.12 is running to install

Okay -- so I need just a little apt-get help.  How do I get apt-get to
ignore the broken dependencies long enough to download and install
linux-image-2.6.12-.....?  Right now, every time I use apt-get to do
something, it tells me that dependencies are broken and advises running
'apt-get -f install', which fails.
How does it fail?  For me, udev installation fails every time I do
anything, but everything else installs okay, before and after its
failure.  I'm not planning on doing anything special to fix it, just
let it keep periodically failing..
