Ideally you would learn how to "pin" apt because that's the proper way
to make it resolve dependencies across different repositories.

Here's a link to "Apt-Pinning for Beginners"

And here's the APT chapter in the Debian manual:


BUT here's a MUCH EASIER idea -- if you're tearing everything down,
just do a Warty install, upgrade it, and then upgrade to Hoary -- the
last Warty kernel will STILL be installed, and you can just choose it
in grub.
