I have been trying to get a useful Debian unstallation up for about 5 weeks now. I can get the base system installed but then where do I look for new packages (the iso image contains next to nothing from what I can tell)? I don't know what to set in the /etc/apt/sources.list file. I probably have missed something in some of the documents but the dselect-beginners guide doesn't tell you much of anything. I'm looking to find xfree86-4.0.*, kde-2.2 and Mozilla or netscape. I guess I could build the whole system from source but I figure there has to be a way or all the debian developers are just wasting their time.



First http://www.debian.org is a very good point to start from.

Second you might want to have look at http://www.internatif.org/bortzmeyer/debian/apt-sources/
