There are two ways to do this.  The easy way is to download the apt package (and you may need a newer version of dpkg for it) and let it do this for you.

ftp://ftp.debian.org/pub/debian/hamm/upgrade-i386/apt_0.1.4.bo_i386.deb

ftp://ftp.debian.org/pub/debian/hamm/upgrade-i386/dpkg_1.4.0.8.deb

Install those packages, edit /etc/apt/sources.list to point to ftp.debian.org for stable (or unstable, if you're feeling adventurous), and tell it:

apt-get update (be prepared to wait a while if you have a slow connection)

apt-get -s install libc6 locales timezones (the -s means simulate)

*look carefully at the result*  I haven't seen apt make a mistake yet, but it can potentially do something stupid like saying that it needs to remove libc or something like that.  It will however tell you.

If everything looks okay, run:

apt-get install libc6 locales timezones (and be prepared to wait a good long time on a slow connection :)

Apt will then automagically determine which files you need, and in which order.


IF YOU ABSOLUTELY FEEL that you have to do this the hard way, you need to go read the file at

Since there are many issues involved with upgrading by hand that would be too long to write here.
