Dapper upgrade fails

I tried to upgrade to Dapper from Breezy two different ways and neither
worked.  The first way:

gksudo "update-manager -d"

The update manager just poped up and indicated everything was up to
date.  So I then tried the second way:

set sources.list to dapper and 

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

This upgraded something, but it didn't boot well.  It couldn't mount
some of the NTFS partitions I have setup.  Hitting Ctrl-C seemed to get
past the errors, but then the X server wouldn't startup.  It looked like
some directories that X needs weren't defined, like font directories and
some others.  Not sure why; Breezy ran fine.
