You answer is correct but, I *think* that Roberto may not be a native English 
speaker and means:
"I'd like to ask how long it will take to upgrade from Sarge to Etch."

Never having done said task, I couldn't say.  It depends a bit on how long it 
takes to download all the packages.  You should aptitude -d dist-upgrade to 
get all the packages first, which will make no changes to your running 
programs.  After that is complete, then you can follow the normal proceedure, 
and it should be quite fast, probably less than an hour, but it depends on 
which packages you have installed.
