IIRC, the bins and tgzs for a potato install aren't completely completed
yet. But, you can always install slink, edit /etc/apt/sources.list to look
in unstable, and "apt-get updage; apt-get dist-upgrade".

This mailing list (and its archives) is one of the best sources around. If
you have slink installed already, you don't need any more floppies at all.
Just point apt to unstable and dist-upgrade it.
