That's a different question and is likely already answered.

I've been upgrading Debian in this manner since at least Potato, if not Slink. This is the Debian way. Clearly, you should be prepared for disaster (i.e. do proper backups). But you would have to do that with a clean install anyway, so what's the difference? Other than not having to waste time with a clean install.

sed -i 's/lenny/squeeze/' /etc/apt/sources.list && apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade. It's quite simple.

In that case, I recommend doing a dist-upgrade.

comment Find out what processes are writing to hard drive
@psusi An open file for writing is very likely being "accessed." Also, more information can be retrieved by learning lsof via its manpage.
