rob, change your sources in /etc/apt/sources.list to point from stable
to testing.  here's my file:




# See sources.list(5) for more info.  You can only use http, ftp or file
# URIs.  CDROMs are managed by apt-cdrom.

pick a branch that you want (like testing).  delete all the other lines.
then do:

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

you might need to run the last line two or three times till all the
dependencies work out.
