Multi step approach may be a good idea unless you already upgraded apt
1. edit /etc/apt/souces.list to include stable/security/testing
2. "apt-get -u dist-upgrade" # I agree with others on this.
3. edit /etc/apt/souces.list to include stable/security/testing/unstable
4. create /etc/apt/preferences with
Pin: release a=testing
Pin: release a=stable
Pin: release a=unstable
5. apt-get install -u -t unstable whateverfromunstablepackage
Now you are testing/unstable. Without preference, you tend to run into
unstable all the time. Read man apt_preference
My web below also list some of my experiences :-)
