Why do you use two mirrors (especially ftp.debian.org, which used to be horribly outdated)?

I'm not sure if the mirror (mirror.ac.za) is up to date at all times, seemed like a good idea. I've not hit it on any upgrades though, so should be safe to remove.

As already said, it's safer to remove third-party repos.

I need wine :) I've done the upgrade though, without it - I'll add the testing repo later and try and get it back.

The following packages will be REMOVED:

Where did you get those two packages? Are you using a 2.6.25 kernel?

Yes, 2.6.25 kernel. Needed some features not in the older kernel on stable. Those two packages are the proprietary ATI drivers.
