Thanks, Slavek and Greg.  

I am only just finally abandoning Lenny and 3.5.10!  In the ordinary way, I 
would have gone straight to Wheezy to avoid yet again clinging to Old Stable 
like grim death.  But using Trinity in a stable manner is obviously more 
important, since this is my main desktop.  (I am reusing my old case, so 
superficially nothing is changing!)

I don't change hardware often, and aim to do a bit of future-proofing.  (I 
built the recently ousted desktop in 2004!) but it is hopefully OK with 
Linux.  I'll report back!!

But I asked for advice, and am basically hearing what I expected.  I'll go 
with Squeeze+backports+

Thanks again, Greg and Slavek.
