I know nothing about Stormix, but as a Debian user myself, perhaps
the following will help:-

In /etc/apt/sources.list, ensure you have a line which reads

deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian stable main contrib non-free

Get on-line and issue the command

   apt-get update

After apt-get has downloaded the various package files, you can then
issue various `apt-get install package ...' commands.

Alternatively, you can use `dselect' for friendlier package
management. It will even help you set up the `/etc/apt/sources.list'
