correct. I guess I didn't read the MAN on apt-get -t to understand.. I thought 
that would look for sid sources. So.. I have to add sid sources to 
souirces.list, do an apt-get update, then run that command.. then take sid 
sources back out. Is there one specific source I can add/change to sid to get 
the exim package?
