Are there step-by-step instructions somewhere for doing a dist-

I'll be glad to RTFM if somebody can point me to the right FM...
Simple go through your sources file and change etch to lenny. Then do
a apt-get update then run apt-get dist-upgrade
Worked like a charm for me.
No need to first manually upgrade Perl or apt?
Why not just the dist-upgrade?
Because "update" tells apt about all the new packages.
