I don't quite know how to do it, and I don't have time to look it up for you, 
but there's a way to get a list of all your packages on Woody and then use 
the Sarge installer to start a new Sarge going, then feed that list into it 
from there to grab everything you had on Woody in one shot.

Something about --get-selections

I'm sure it's in the archives.
