Last time we made a copy and did a dist-upgrade on that, because we
were scared :-) The upgrade went smoothly and I recall someone made
comments about just winging it and fixing things if they go wrong.

This time I'd probably go with the winging approach. There is a
somewhat large change in the way debian boots, with the new events
based boot system. It works ALMOST flawlessly on a virtual setup such
as this, except for one small problem, none of the sysinit scripts
(those you normally find in /etc/rcS.d) are run, it only runs the
scripts in rc3.d. Luckily there is only about three of those scripts
that are actually important for a virtual server (setting the
hostname, updating /etc/mtab) so this is a simple "patch" that needs
to be made. Also, any of your own init scripts that you may have
written must now have the commented LSB dependency lines at the top. I
did not check it, perhaps you already have it, I just have to mention
