Libranet to Sarge


I am new to this list and new to debian (but not linux). A few months ago, I installed woody on my laptop, but was disappointed in the shape the install left things. There were too many things left to configure manually.

So, over the weekend, I wiped it and decided to try the free version of Libranet (2.0), basically for the installer, with plans to convert to sarge. The Libranet install went great, set up my network, sound, X, etc. reasonably well.

Next, I changed my /etc/apt/sources.list to point to sarge instead of woody. Then, I did an "apt-get install synaptic", then upgraded X to 4.2.1 and fixed up my X even better. Upgraded a few more things with synaptic. Wow, synaptic/apt-get rocks!

Sorry about the long pre-amble...my question is if I do an apt-get upgrade, will I officially be converted to sarge, or is there more to it than that? I realize some of the Libranet stuff will be left over.

By the way, is there some reason Debian can't adopt the Libranet installer and tweak it for the Debain defaults intead of the Libranet defaults? The installer is very nice.
