Hi Edianto

Not sure what you mean by this.  Are you using  tasksel, dselect or aptitude to
install packages? Or maybe you are just doing apt-get install package?
I would suggest you use aptitude. If it's not installed do 
apt-get install aptitude

Then run aptitude (check out the help available and man aptitude)

This is a configuration file and won't run as a program.  If you wan't
to change your sources list to upgrade to sarge or sid for example then
you would edit it with a text editor such as vim, pico or nano
(depending on what you have installed).  Anyway it sounds as though you
need to become more familiar with Debian before attempting an upgrade.

However, some of the packages in woody are quite old (a new release is
on its way) but you can download KDE 3. by using backports.

I would suggest that you do some research on the debian user list
archives on "backports"
