- edit /etc/apt/sources.list
- disable any third-party repos
- replace any occurrence of "edgy" with "feisty"
- at the prompt run "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade"
- then wait and keep checking for prompts about overwriting customized 
files etc. etc.

if it craps out you can usually get back on track by running:

- sudo apt-get install -f
- sudo dpkg --configure -a

and once those commands stop returning errors you can resume the upgrade 
by running the "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" command again.


hope this helps
