Re: mixing stable and testing/unstable

I don't know what the original 'blah blah blah' poster is talking about with his 'chrooted sid on top of stable' crap, that's completely unnecessary. It is fairly easy to have a mix of packages from stable and testing (i wouldn't recommend unstable). See these short instructions:

APT HOWTO section 3.8 How to keep a mixed system
<A HREF="http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/apt-howto/ch-apt-get.en.html#s-default-version" title="debian.org">http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/apt-howto/ch-ap<nobr>t<wbr></nobr> -get.en.html#s-default-version</a debian.org>

'Sarge' has Firefox 1.0, KDE 3.2, GIMP 2.0, etc.
