FW: Help! I broke it!
Now that I've done this . . .
My installation path thus far was Woody ISO to CD-ROM's, and install
from CD - then upgrade my packages via "updates", "testing", and <gulp>
"unstable" via "apt-get dist-upgrade".
If this is a terrible idea, please give a written slap - preferably with
an explanation why.
Now, after applying these upgrades - am I running on Sarge/Sid? Or am I
running Woody with some individual packages that are newer?

the problem is actually with the LIBSTDC++5 package.
dpkg -i libstdc++5_3.3-0pre5_i386.deb
then do an apt-get -f install. everything *should* just sort itself
