It is possible to upgrade, if you update /etc/apt/sources.list to point to
dapper instead of breezy, and then do:

apt-get install linux-686 usplash

Replace "686" with whatever kernel you normally use (e.g. 386, 686, k7).
WARNING: You cannot downgrade, nor run your 2.6.12 kernel once doing this. You
will be able to boot back to 2.6.12, but because udev is not compatible, you may
not see all of your devices (USB storage, network, etc).

Not Colony, the dapper dev cd's are called Flight, and right now you can
download Flight 2 (fresh off the server!).
