Ok from memory, this is what I did.  (My memory has a few bad sectors 

Follow Jarods howto until you get to the point where the apt-get yum will 
fail due to dependencies, so I skip that step.  Also apt-get dist upgrade 
fails due to yum dependencies.

Then remove yum.

rpm -qa | grep yum
rpm -e yum-whatever

Then do the apt-get dist upgrade again.

# apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade    This should complete ok

At this point apt-get has been removed so I reinstall it.  Not sure how 
that happened.

# rpm -Uvh 

 From this point on it should work. and the kernel update is succesful.

Linux is user friendly.
Its just real picky about who its friends are.
