But this means, that there should be some packages that need to be
downgraded, or am i wrong? You put packages from Sid on the CD and
modify your sources list to "testing", right? And there are no problems?
Really? :-)

Debian upgrading is great and I love the APT-System - but downgrading
(like e.g. with BSD´s Ports-system) isnt that cool. But ok, you are the
ones who know. I think i will give it a try next time I have to set up a
Debian machine.
