post install question

I have a couple of questions regarding how you guys procede to have your systeme configured.

apt-get all your apps first?
then you do apt-get upgrade and dist-upgrade?
Or you pin then dist-upgrade?
How about kernel 2.6 upgrade? before of after dist-upgrade or doesn't matter?

I want kernel 2.6 (pre-emptive and low latency patch are integrated in 2.6 right?).
I want the latest progs and gnome 2.4.....and I was wondering if there is a recommended order to avoid conficts and dependencies probs.

2.6 requires some packages from unstable to compile, so pinning and then dist-upgradeing sould solve all that without destablizing your system.
I would recomend compilng your own kernal over installing the precompiled .deb. I tried it with test 6 and if barfed. From the few coments I have read that is common with the precompiled kernals, especally the 2.6 ones.
Remember that 2.6 uses a different compile method so do not use adminmenu for it.
