Excellent. Thanks Sven. Should I then install insserv by hand before doing the dist-upgrade then?

The latter. *When you actually do the dist-upgrade, it will work (or at
least not hit this particular problem). *The insserv package in squeeze
breaks the lenny sysv-rc package, while the squeeze sysv-rc package
depends on the new insserv -- a kind of dependency loop that requires
temporarily auto-deconfiguring sysv-rc.
