RE: cannot install aptitude: Broken packages
Would changing all mentions of woody to sarge in my apt/sources.list then
doing a dist-upgrade fix the problem:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
aptitude: Depends: libapt-pkg-libc6.2-3-2-3.2
E: Broken packages
I know the Release Notes say to use aptitude, but could I just use apt-get
instead? Could my package system unbreak itself if I just dist-upgraded to
sarge with apt-get?

Actually, I already tried dist-upgrading woody and it still gives me the
aptitude broken package error.

Shouldn't that be 'apt-get dist-upgrade' ?
Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest.
