I took this route, without first bothering to see what other options
exist on the wiki. It seems to have gone mostly OK, but probably
wouldn't have if I hadn't intervened. I followed along periodically
running df /. When freespace approached 0, I started looking for things
to delete in /var/cache/apt/archives, and deleted various things dated
last year or prior. As space again approached 0, I'd delete yet more,
including the KDE 3.4.3 packages, and the big OO2 base package. I seem
to have a working dapper, but with with/without the following.

1-still only the old 2.6.12 breezy kernel
2-still over 600M in /var/cache/apt/archives
3-only 3% freespace on /
4-haven't tried to open OO2

What are all those packages doing still in /var/cache/apt/archives?
Shouldn't I be using a more recent kernel? If so, how should I get one?
