In light of your suggestion and after an apt-get update, upgrade, clean cycle, I tried the command line. It returned an error about watch--> that is was part of another package.
I then pumped that output to a file, and simply removed watch (or any other offensive packages in future).
Afterwards, I uncommented those entries in my sources.list that were not used currently but needed none the less.
RAVEN:/home/jchap# apt-get --reinstall -t unstable -d install `cat package.list`
Reading Package Lists... Done

Reinstallation of kernel-image-2.6.9-pristine+adk is not possible, it cannot be downloaded.
Reinstallation of kmyfirewall-0.9.6.2 is not possible, it cannot be downloaded.
Reinstallation of libdvdcss2 is not possible, it cannot be downloaded.
The following NEW packages will be installed:
0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 774 reinstalled, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 612MB/612MB of archives.
Somehow I got check in there...will have to check on that. Otherwise, great!
The kernel-image and kmyfirewall are those packages compiled from source, libdvdcss2 ...
Anyway, thanks. I'll have to really study upon the formating commands like grep and sed.
This all came about by wanting to create a SID system based upon my packages on another machine. I will keep these files on dvd-ram or dvd-r(w). Dunno yet. Although I found/installed a superior replacement for pixie-plus (showimg), it took a lil time in finding just the right package. If I should find a package has been removed from archives, it may not be removed from mine! Yeah!
