If your server is running with no problems, there is no compelling reason to upgrade. If there is something that you need that is in Intrepid, but not hardy, the way to upgrade is to edit /etc/apt/sources.list and change all instances of Hardy to Intrepid, and save the file, then at the prompt type:

sudo aptitude update

then use either:

sudo aptitude safe-upgrade


sudo aptitude full-upgrade

I prefer aptitude to apt-get as aptitude seems to be a bet safer than apt-get.
