etch to lenny upgrade

I have changed my sources.list to read as below. I just changed the old one by 
changing etch references to lenny.

My current sources.list

deb ftp://debian.mirrors.tds.net/debian/ lenny main contrib non-free
deb-src ftp://debian.mirrors.tds.net/debian/ lenny main contrib non-free

When I do, "aptitude upgrade"
