I was about to mention the same.

Installing all Kubuntu packages of "Kubuntu 5.10", and then upgrade to
6.06 and then perhaps to "Kubuntu 6.10". Seems like much more work, than
just burning a "Kubuntu 6.10" CD image and installing it into the
partition occupied by the Ubuntu install.


If you have a /home "partition", try to keep it. If you don't have /home
partition (as I suspect it's your case), all data in that diretory will
be lost. So you might want to backup it, if you want to preserve things
from it.
