When I do anything like that I usually copy the system partitions on
to now areas of the hard drive, edit /etc/fstab, and make sure both
sets of partitions boot properly.
Then if anything goes wrong with a dist-upgrade, I have an untouched
bootable set of partitions to reboot to and use as a fully functioning
base for recovery.
And of course, start by backing up your data. Just in case.
