I'm just doing an upgrade at the moment (disabled any PPA's, changed 
lucid entries to maverick in sources.list and then ran apt-get update 
followed by apt-get dist-upgrade).

It froze for a couple of minutes on Grub, it seemed to take at least 2 
or 3 minutes to find the kernels, at first I thought it had failed 
(there was no disk activity), although I left it and it appears to be 
okay, or at least it's finished configuring Grub and it's now asking me 
what I want to do with my Samba config file.

I'll report back when I'm done, if all else fails I guess I can 
reinstall from a USB stick.
