apt-get for both rpm and deb

Hi every body,
I ve installed SL ( Scientific Linux) based on redhat. It uses apt-get for installing package, unfortunatly, it seems don't support deb.
I create sources file like this :

deb 1 sarge main contrib
deb sarge main contrib
deb sarge main contrib
rpm apt os

the iso sarge CD 1 is mounted on
the iso sarge CD 2 is mounted on and so on ..

the iso SL CD1 is mounted on .......

from a debian machine I can install any package from deb http://..... and I have to comment the rpm lines
from a SL machine I can install any package from rpm http://..... and I have to comment the deb lines

Is there a possibility to do both, since the apt-get install on SL does the rpm !!!

thank for help
best regards
