I am running Debian (woody) on a Mac SE/30 (16 MHz
68030 with 80 MB RAM and 4 GB HD). I am also connected
via DSL, but have a static ip rather than DHCP.
As you surmised, your problem is not related to using a
slow machine, as I can assure you mine is much slower!
I have yet to encounter a problem using apt-get, and
can not yet explain yours.
Did you have apt-get install any packages as part of
your Debian install, or did you use apt-get for the
first time post-Debian install? I suppose one
possibility would be to repeat the Debain installation,
and configure apt-get to install some packages at that
point, and see if it functions properly then. If so,
then it should also work post-install.
