I am wondering what the "debian-update-3.0r2.01-i386.iso" is... what is that CD for? Also, once I have installed the stable release how do I update the packages to all be from the "testing" slot?

apt-get dist-upgrade

But what of the strange "update" cd?

That update CD appears to be a Woody r1 to r2 update image (http://lists.debian.org/debian-user/2004/01/msg02788.html) Only useful if you have release canidate 1 installed, I presume.

The only cd's i ever need for debian is the first 3, and for everything else I use apt-get.
