Man, its just tough to track down dependency problems, with such an old release. I'm guessing you don't have access to any other PC where you can try and download and burn a new release...
Only other thing I can suggest, I know you're using 6.10, but maybe the .deb file from 6.06 will work. Unfortunately they've taken all Edgy packages down, because its no longer supported... Download the .deb and double click, and see what happens.
Perhaps if you have a LOCO team in your area, you could contact someone and ask them to burn you a disk and give it to you.
