You have two options:
1. Run the installer via PXE
This requires setup of a machine with DHCP and tftp servers, and your
NIC must support PXE boot. I can give details later.
2. Use apt
If you do this, you *must* run mkinitrd after the upgrade is
finished, but *before* rebooting - for /all/ kernels installed. It is
best to run apt-get dist-upgrades in a screen session with logging
enabled, so that you can go through it and follow up on all the
.rpmnew and .rpmsave files you will have to hand-edit (you'll
have to do this in case of 1 too i think).
