I have an update CD for Potato from the Linux Expo 2001 (London).
There's Ximian's updates on there - plus loads of other goodies, but I
don't know where you'd get one. Easiest thing to do is go to
http://www.ximian.com and download either the Ximian-Gnome desktop for Debian 2.2, or add a line in your /etc/apt/sources.list (the website will tell you). Either way you'll be able to get Gimp 1.2. I think Ximian are supplying Gimp 1.2.2 at the moment for Potato.
