good lord, someone replied to the uber-thread and actually has a
legitimate debian query. the gall!

[and it's about time!]  :)

(jeff, i noticed that your question above showed up nestled
into the shuttle disaster message thread; you correctly changed
the subject to something meaningful -- good job -- but you
should have remove the "in-reply-to" header as well. i'm
repeating your message here in hopes that someone who might know
is more likely to see it. i've moved the "in-reply-to" header
referencing your message [see below] so it'll show up as a new
thread. in theory... good luck!)

SECURITY-CONSCIOUS? Good! Here's how you can use apt-get to keep
your system up-to-date with the latest security patches: in
/etc/apt/sources.list include these lines--
	deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security stable/updates main contrib non-free
	deb http://security.debian.org/debian-non-US stable/non-US main contrib non-free
	deb http://security.debian.org stable/updates main contrib non-free
Thereafter, a quick "apt-get update && apt-get upgrade" is all
you need to keep the gremlins at bay.
