The set of instructions that I'm recommending involve using dselect.
They go like this:
1. Install the most recent a.out dpkg version from the upgrades
directory on the FTP site. You probably want at least 1.1.5. To
install it you just type `dpkg --install dpkg-1.1.5.deb' or
2. Type `dselect' and go through Access/Update/Select/Install/Remove
