Go to:
and get the root.bin and rescue.bin files.  The rescue.bin file is
a bootable disk.  Once it loads the kernel, it will ask you for the
root.bin disk, which is the root filesystem.

Are you looking for source deb files?  You put a deb-src line in your
sources.list and:

apt-get source _some_package_name?

Anyone back me up on this one?
