Apt-get is totally more flexible than up2date.
I'm a recent convert from RedHat. In fact, I've just completed transitioning
my four home network boxes from RH 7.2 to Debian Sid (unstable) with a fifth
box that serves as a web/mail/firewall server now running Debian Woody
Check out Knoppix: http://www.knopper.net/knoppix/index-en.html - It offers a
one command HD install from CD. I used it to install Debian on three boxes,
then used 'apt-get dist-upgrade ' to convert them to unstable.
Network install is great too, if you have a broadband connection. For an iMac
I booted from a 1.44Mb image and installed a base system, then dist-upgrade
to move up to Sid.
