There is no single package to upgrade the distro (this is not unique
to Debian, I've yet to see any distro that has one package that
magically updates the distro).
Change woody to sarge in your /etc/apt/sources.list

Get a *real* modem. Real modems don't need drivers. I strongly
suggest a modem that connects to your computer's RS232 port
externally, they Just Work(tm). Aunt Tillie could even install an
external modem in Linux without help...
