Debian upgrade

Since my wife prefers kde3 to kde4, I have kept lenny on her machine.
Fortunately, with the upgrade to squeeze imminent, I found trinity.
The install in lenny was smooth, but then I changed my apt.conf to
point to testing and changed the trinity.list to point to , and if I
do an apt-get dist-upgrade, it wants to deinstall all of trinity.
aptitude full-upgrade spits out pages and pages of dependency
problems, things which I would think would be upgraded in a dist- (or
full-) upgrade.

What is the proper path to upgrading a Debian box with trinity
installed? I would like to get at least to testing, but would really
prefer getting to sid, if trinity from squeeze will run there.
