Trying to install a deb file with

I don't have dkpg-scanpackages but I have dkpg?
I do an apt-get install dkpg
and get I already have the newest version.
So is dkpy-scanpackages inside another package?
how would I find it?
Of course it is just there on my i386 install.
Running debian 3.1 on a b2600 2.6.8-2-64
Thanks for any insight, suggestions, links
richard@beast:/mnt/parisc$ dpkg -S /usr/bin/dpkg-scanpackages
So dpkg-scanpackages is provided by dpkg-dev. dpkg-scanpackages isn't
used to "install a deb file", but I assume you know what you meant :)
Just another tip I use frequently in this case:
At this page's bottom you can "Search the contents of packages"
even by intall type (i.e. stable, testing, ...) and also by arch (i386,
hppa, ...), e.g. dpkg-scanpackages for stable & hppa
(well just like a common cmdl it dislikes my dyslectic key typing as
atp-egt in place of apt-get ;-| )
