When I was using potato, I just downloaded the .deb packages via ftp, then did
a "dpkg -i <package names>". It seemed to work fine with apt. AFAIK, that
isn't the recommended way, though, since you'll have to handle dependencies
It's probably better to change your sources.list, install the packages you
want, and then change your sources.list back.
