Hi,

There is a way to upgrade to sarge from woody.
The problem, is as someone else says, the basic install is really important and debian sarge installer does this without sweat. I strongly suggest you download and burn said installer and save yourself a lot of troubles. It will install debian base then you get discover, hotplug, x-windows and a window manager of your choice.

Good luck, you'll be happy after : )
