apt-get is the program that does all the work,
---> synaptic is only a front-end, or GUI part of apt-get.

Edit the "sources.list" file found in /etc/apt/ directory.
Add these lines (replacing the Redhat 9.0 section):

# Red Hat Linux 9
rpm redhat/9/i386 os updates freshrpms

### Dag Apt Repository for Red Hat 9
rpm redhat/9/en/i386 dag

### - a german repo
rpm redhat/9/i386 os updates

### vlug - another repo
rpm redhat/9/en/i386 inoupdates vlugrpms
