Upgrade instructions

If you don't use pinning (see [1]) you have to update the package manually via "apt-get -t lenny-backports install <packagelist>" with the packagelist of your installed packages affected by this update. [1] <http://backports.debian.org/Instructions>

We recommend to pin (in /etc/apt/preferences) the backports repository to 200 so that new versions of installed backports will be installed automatically.

Package: * Pin: release a=lenny-backports Pin-Priority: 200
