There was a guy a couple years ago who upgraded a Red Hat system to
Debian without rebooting it (!). He wrote down what he did and put it
on a web page somewhere; maybe that will give you some ideas.
I think the simplest way to change distributions will be to (a) back
up /home and all of your tweaks, (b) do a clean install, formatting
the drive and everything, and (c) restore your /home and put your
tweaked software in /usr/local.
Hope that helps.
If the meanings of "true" and "false" were switched, then this sentence
would not be false.
