I upgraded my Dapper to Edgy yesterday and I now have ~200 packages that 
want to be uninstalled, including lots of system libraries. I hosed half 
of my system before noticing it...

So if I'd were you, I'd backup your self-modified /etc files and your 
/home/<username> and go for a fresh install!

Although I had some problems with the installer of Knot 3...
* Unable to select "no localization", so I selected "English"
* Partitioner doesn't start 99% of the time
* Random hangs when clicking forward so I've started then installer 
dozens of times...

When you do get edgy running, things are much smoother...
