user.skolelinux.no is installed with Debian/Sarge.  I've installed
xplanet as well, but the version in sarge.  My only suggestion is to
curse the xplanet developers for not keeping the package backwards
compatible, and modify the map drawing scripts to use the new command
line interface. :(

Yes, that might help as well, but I am reluctant to start installing
backports on user.s.n.
