Are there step-by-step instructions somewhere for doing a dist- upgrade from Etch (current stable) to Lenny (soon-to-be stable)?

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.
