Thanks for nice help... very usefull.

Before getting into whats happening.. I'm currently and have been a
bit confused about debian naming/versioning setup.

I thought etch was quite a bit older than squeeze.  I thought squeeze
was newer than `lenny'.. have I gotten all backwards?

Getting into the frey with the broken pkgs.. I see apt wanting to
install a whole herd of video drivers.

The following partially installed packages will be configured:
  libcompress-zlib-perl libice-dev libsm-dev libxaw7-dev libxmu-dev 
  libxt-dev perl-doc perl-modules xserver-xorg xserver-xorg-core 
  xserver-xorg-input-evdev xserver-xorg-input-kbd xserver-xorg-input-mouse 
  xserver-xorg-input-synaptics xserver-xorg-input-wacom
