With Debian it is relative easy to setup ipv6 using aiccu.

This can be done using the following steps (assuming you already have an account at www.sixxs.net):
1) install aiccu

sudo apt-get install aiccu

2) edit de /etc/network/interfaces
add the following entries:

auto sixxs
iface sixxs inet6 manual
up ip link set mtu 1480 dev $IFACE
pre-up invoke-rc.d aiccu start
post-down invoke-rc.d aiccu stop
3) disable the automatic start of aiccu</p>
sudo update-rc.d aiccu disable
4) bring the interface up using the command</p>
sudo ifup sixxs
