Post how to upgrade from sqeeze to wheezy?


hi,friends.
i am using sqeeze now and i want to move to wheezy.I have googled it and find so many answers,but i added third party repos to my sources.list . I think that it may give problems at time of upgrade.I am pasting sources.list
Code:
deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.5 _Squeeze_ - Official i386 CD Binary-1 20120512-13:45]/ squeeze main

#security repos
deb http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main
deb http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://mozilla.debian.net/ squeeze-backports iceweasel-release

#backports
deb http://backports.debian.org/debian-backports squeeze-backports main
deb http://backports.debian.org/debian-backports squeeze-backports main contrib non-free

#mirror
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian squeeze main contrib non-free

#multimedia
deb ftp://ftp.deb-multimedia.org squeeze main non-free
can any one please brief the upgrade process?

I'm of the mind that if you have to ask this question, you should not be considering upgrading to the testing branch...

Why exactly do you want to upgrade to testing?

If you've found a bug in the stable system - check if it's already been reported and if so read the bug report, if not, report it. I don't see where upgrading to testing comes into it?

So you don't have a problem with this bug on your system? You want to upgrade to testing just to try and fix this bug...?

Well if you're set on the idea:

Comment out/remove your existing sources and add the following:

Code:
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian testing main contrib non-free
Then kill the x server and

Code:
# apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade
It may be a bumpy ride... time to brush up on your apg-get foo...
