That doesn't exist. It's either Sarge, which is Debian 3.1, or Woody,
which is Debian 3.0. A release version 3.0, codenamed "Sarge", does not
and will not ever exist.
I think you are correct. I didn't realise that 3.0 is not Sarge. When normal boot up was completed, it shows:
Debian GNU/Linux 3.0
just before the log in prompt. And the kernel is 2.4.18bf2. Is there any other way to confirm this?

That's likely because you can't install a backport which was compiled
for Sarge on a Woody system. If you want to keep the system in its
current state, you are out of luck. If that's not important, you can
first upgrade the woody machine to a sarge machine (see the sarge
release notes for how to do that; you can find these on the Debian
website), and then install the postgresql backports.
I will try this upgrade suggestion.
My main problem was not being able to display in PHP5 date fields prior
to 1/1/70, retrieved from PostgreSQL v7.4.x. It worked flawlessly in
the fresh server built with backported Sarge v3r2.
