Do you realize 2.0 is rather old?
ie Debian 2.1 has been out for approx 1 year and Debian 2.2 is expected
to be out in several months (so I have heard).
Elsewhere, I read it is best to upgrade to 2.1 before 2.2, so I would
recommend you upgrade to 2.1 for now.
As for you problem, I had exactly the same problem. seminar.cls is
non-free, and included in tetex-nonfree. The fact that seminar.cls was
included in the source code package was a bug that the maintainer said
he was going to fix (I never have checked).
Arrghhh. I like the concept behind LaTeX (eg non-graphical editing of
documents, good mathematics support), but *hate* the implementation.
Its ok for the basic style, but as soon as you want to do anything
different you run into problems with non-free implementations or
hacked solutions that conflict with each other.
