RE: cannot install aptitude: Broken packages
Yes, I changed every mention of stable to woody so I could upgrade all of my

Thanks for your help.

did you change your sources.list before attempting to install

so can't say, but if it recommends using aptitude, you'd want that
installed before you do anything else.
