I have not played with the RemovingUpdatedPackages wiki instructions. I assume 
those instructions would find any updated packages and install them? Wouldn't a 
upgrade and/or dist-upgrade do the same for the most part?

As far as upgrading from dapper 6.06.1(alternate CD) here is my script...

mv /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.BACKUP

mkdir /etc/apt/OLDgpg
mv /etc/apt/*.gpg /etc/apt/OLDgpg
cp ./gpgStuff/*.gpg /etc/apt/

touch /etc/apt/sources.list

echo deb deltad main universe >> 
echo deb-src deltad main universe >> 
echo deb deltad-security main 
universe >> /etc/apt/sources.list
echo deb-src deltad-security main 
universe >> /etc/apt/sources.list
echo deb deltad-updates main 
universe >> /etc/apt/sources.list
echo deb-src deltad-updates main 
universe >> /etc/apt/sources.list
echo deb deltad-backports main 
universe >> /etc/apt/sources.list
echo deb-src deltad-backports main 
universe >> /etc/apt/sources.list

apt-get update

apt-get dist-upgrade --assume-yes --force-yes

apt-get remove --assume-yes --force-yes --purge linux-restricted-* 
linux-image-2.6.15-26-386 nvidia-kernel-common

apt-get remove --assume-yes --force-yes --purge usplash ubuntu-artwork 
ubuntu-desktop ubuntu-docs ubuntu-minimal ubuntu-standard

apt-get install --assume-yes dialog gnewsense-artwork gnewsense-desktop 
gnewsense-minimal gnewsense-standard

YMMV but this works great for me. I assume this gets me a 100% gnewsense!?! 
Using the dapper alternate install cd also allows me to do a 'lite' install 
which I prefer.

I was thinking a dapper install CD and start the installer with a preseed file 
and you come out with gnewsense installed. Any thoughts?
