The release notes for Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 ("sarge"), Intel 86
-- upgrades chapter says to read
before rebooting.  I haven't found the information there to be
of much use,  except to tell me that the entire X susbystem
bas been thouroghly churned and not to expect too much
fron doing the upgrade.  Doing
   apt-get install x-window-system
doesn't seem to help.
