I never do a clean install. The reason I move to Debian was to avoid
doing clean installs. I've configured my system just the way I like it
and I don't want to do it again.

Edit /etc/apt/sources.list and replace every instance of 'breezy' by
'dapper'. Then do:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Then reboot the computer. If all went well, you should be in Dapper. In
my experience, I've always had to reconfigure X.
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
Write this command down. I have hopes that Dapper won't require me to
reconfigure X, but I wouldn't bet on it. In the case of Breezy I wasn't
surprised because Breezy changed from XFree86 to X.org, but going from
Warty to Hoary shouldn't have required me to reconfigure X and it did.
