Hey,

The title says it all :). How do i proceed if i want to upgrade from
Etch to Sid? Of course, burning a Sid image and doing a from scratch
install is out of the question... I'm looking for another way

Hi Bogdan,

I would say: If you have to ask *this* question, then the answer would
be: Not recommended.

Why are you wanting to "jump" to Sid? There is no way to go back to Etch
if you don't like it.

If you just want newer software, check out http://debian.backports.org
(or something like that) but then, by definition, your system is no
longer stable. 8-(
