I downloaded the correct update from the FTP site as stated in the package manager in linux the one with -linuxglibc2.0.tar.gz , extracted to a folder, navigated to the folder in console and ran ./ns-install. It goes fine, updates Navigator to 4.7 but there's no still no Messenger. How do I add (find) Messenger? I gotta have a decent modern newsreader, I'm just no good with this terminal stuff.

Could you dumb that down a little please? I opened /etc/apt/sources.list and
discovered this:
# Use for a local mirror - remove the ftp1 http lines for the bits
# your mirror contains.
# deb file:/your/mirror/here/debian stable main contrib non-free
# See sources.list(5) for more information, especial
# Remember that you can only use http, ftp or file URIs
deb file:/mnt/amnt/cdrom1 corellinux-1.0 main contrib non-free corel
deb ftp://ftp.corel.com/pub/linux/CorelLinux corellinux-1.0 main contrib non-free corel
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian slink main contrib non-free
deb http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US slink non-US
#deb /web/  main contrib non-free non-US
Originally the last 3 lines had # (I assume those are comments) I took all 3
off but  Corel Update would not load, so I replaced the last one. I'm in the
dark here, what am I trying to do? I just know how to install stuff Windows
style. Is Corel Update even any use here?

How do I remove it? If I do will the full version install?
