Heres' the code for latest dist-upgrade of kanotix 2005-4 to the latest:

:: Code ::
dpkg --purge hal pptpd dbus-1 dbus
#Ctrl+Alt+F1 - to get to console mode
#logon as root, type
init 3
apt-get dist-upgrade
apt-get install hal dbus
fix-fonts

run ati or nvidia script if needed [DO NOT USE synaptic for dist-upgrade]

or just start the process in init 3, that's easier

kernel upgrades are a separate process

DO NOT USE THIS: IT CAUSES GTK APPS LIKE FIREFOX TO CRASH

:: Code ::
apt-get install gtk2-engines-gtk-qt

The gtk2-engines.. is seriously buggy, and will completely destabilize firefox. And probably other applications. I read elsewhere that simply installing another theme on firefox would resolve that issue but it didn't.

will add gtk support to gnome stuff running in kde. this adds a menu item in kde control center, under appearances and themes: GTK styles and Fonts.

This helps maintain consistent appearance between kde and gnome apps. Firefox, thunderbird, for example, are gnome apps mainly, OOo too I think.

For sound card not working, as root run:

alsaconf

then if the settings don't stick on reboot, run:

alsactl store

to get rid of debian k3b bug where you get asked for root privileges for cdrao on k3b start but configuration dialoge is not present due to debian removing it, this thread covers solution.

:: Code ::
* dpkg-statoverride --add --update root cdrom 4750 /usr/bin/cdrecord
* dpkg-statoverride --add --update root cdrom 4750 /usr/bin/cdrecord.shm
* dpkg-statoverride --add --update root cdrom 4750 /usr/bin/cdrecord.mmap
* dpkg-statoverride --add --update root cdrom 4750 /usr/bin/readcd
* dpkg-statoverride --add --update root cdrom 4710 /usr/bin/cdrdao
* dpkg-statoverride --add --update root cdrom 4710 /usr/bin/mkisofs
