Just change 'stable' or 'sarge' to 'etch'. You could also use
'testing', but this will result in an upgrade to lenny when etch is
released. You probably don't want that.

A simple 'upgrade' will probably not do. You will have to use
'dist-upgrade'. Don't expect this to be 100% smooth. You will go
through big changes (XFree86 to Xorg, udev, ...) and might want to read
the release notes first:
