I think step 3.) is necessary.  It'll rebuild the caches that apt-get
and dselect use to contain the potato info.  If you don't the caches,
the caches will still have the woody info.  Your next apt-get upgrade
or dist-upgrade will then put you on woody.

Of course, if you use the apt-get method in dselect, you only have to
run `dselect update`.
