Ok. I did this and I have been able to move to the testing
distribution. Unfortuantely, I encountered an error when running
dist-upgrade on that distribution. I got a pop-up box that states,

"You are currently upgrading udev to a version that is not compatible
with the currently running kernel. You MUST install a compatible
kernel version (2.6.18 or newer) before upgrading, otherwise the
system may become UNUSABLE. Packages with a name starting with
"linux-image-2.6-" provide a kernel image usable with this new udev

I ran uname -r and got my kernel version as "", but
dist-upgrade doesn't look like it will upgrade the kernel version for

Also, now when I run apt-get dist-upgrade, I am seeing "75 not fully
installed or removed." because the last install stopped on the udev
problem... how can I keep this from being a problem?

Thanks for your help.
