it was worth a shot, but--

apt looks for "dists" and th'ain't none thar.

what do i need in /etc/apt/sources.list to get the new
postgresql for woody, O debianista gurus? is there a cheat-sheet
available for newbies such as me?

I use Debian/GNU Linux version 2.2;
Linux server 2.2.17 #1 Sun Jun 25 09:24:41 EST 2000 i586 unknown

Wanting to SYNCHRONIZE YOUR SYSTEM CLOCK periodically? If you
think your system clock gathers or loses a few extra seconds
each day, you're probably looking for "ntpdate" which queries
several "network time protocol" servers, and sets your system
clock accordingly.
	apt-get install ntpdate ntp-doc
then browse /usr/share/doc/ntp-doc/html for info.
