I just updated a poor 1.3.1 system to 2.0 using a single program: apt.
You can download a bo-version at:


look for the file with bo in its name.  After that you can choose from
two different ways.  Either use the apt method in dselect or run the
apt-get command manually.  Just configure the /etc/apt/sources.list
and execute these commands:

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

I was able to update to 2.0 without even rebooting the computer.
