He needs only to revise his /etc/apt/sources.list to contain the
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian stable main contrib non-free
deb http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US stable non-US/main non-US/contrib non-US/non-free
Then, he will be able to bring all installed packages up to the current
revisions of the Debian-stable track (as of any given date) by just typing
apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade
The Storm Technologies-originated enhancements such as Storm Package

since Stormix has been highly compatible with Debian proper.
