Jochen Thank you again for your help with this!

Here's a thought.

I am setting up an internet server as a training exercise, using the
O'Reilly book referenced at the top of this thread.  The server is
only for training (to learn Debian and networking).

 Therefore, maybe I could install the version of Debian that was
current in 2007 (when the book was written).  Would that be "sarge"?

Then, I'm guessing I wouldn't have to deal with this problem of
obsolete packages.  Once I've learned how to build an internet server
without O'Reilly holding my hand, I could update to the current stable
version of Debian.

Assuming this makes sense, how would I get the sarge equivalent of

Again, thanks for your very valuable help!
