* qt1.2 can be found in the Debian ftp site in the potato directories (it
might also be in slink, I can't remember now.

* To install the packages, just type
	dpkg -i <full package name including the .deb extension>

* The .lsm files are basically descriptions of the packages, you don't need to
(download or) install them

* You can run under hamm, but you might need the latest version of libc6 - I'm
still working that issue out myself.
