Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am trying to install KDE from scratch on a Debian base system (2.4.18 xfs enabled iso image) that has X installed. I got as far as installing kdelib3-crypto, then recieve the below message. please note, that I borrowed the message from another forum post, where the user received the same error message. Obviously, the install of packages stops here because of dependencies. The answer suggested to use apt-get to download the package and install it. I tried;
"apt-get install kde-lib3-crypto kdebase-crypto"

with the same result.
Any suggestions what I am doing wrong? The only possible problem is that the crypto packages are non-US.
