flawed thinking on dist upgrade?

Being a Debian newbie and running Potato2.2r on a PII
350 this is the course of action that I'm thinking of
taking to do a upgrade to Woody is it flawed?
  1. Do a apt-get install on Adrin Bunk's .deb files
  2. Do a apt-get install kernel 2.4.3 image and
  Question...Once I do the kernel install how do I
install the updated ppp that I said no to when I did
the Adrin update?
  3. Add the deb-src lines from Dave's Debians Doc's
at dharris.freeshell.org/linux
  4  Do a apt-get update woody.
  5. Do a apt-get source woody.
  6. Do dpkg-buildpackage -uc -b
  7. Comment out the deb-src lines then do a dpkg -i
 I have read lots of posts on this site where people
have done a apt-get dist-upgrade and their system has
been really messed up. 
 Is my approach hosed ?
I have a tough skin so all comment appreciated.
