I did both my edubuntu systems using apt-get dist-upgrade:

It does take some time. One on a 350 MHz PII probably took more than 6
hours. The other on a PIII 500 I started late and let run overnight, so
don't really know the time it took. I'd guess with a fast connection and
machine it should be done in under 3 hours this way.
