apt-get errors


I installed Damn Small Linux (variant of Debian) and for some reason the make command is not installed. I am logged in as root when I do this. I try to run apt-get install make but I get this error:

apt-get install make
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:
fileutils
The following NEW packages will be installed:
fileutils make
0 upgraded, 2 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 0B/1097kB of archives.
After unpacking 2773kB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n] y
(Reading database ... 10504 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking fileutils (from .../fileutils_4.1-10_i386.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/fileutils_4.1-10_i386.deb (--unpack):
trying to overwrite `/bin/chgrp', which is also in package coreutils

Errors were encountered while processing:
/var/cache/apt/archives/fileutils_4.1-10_i386.deb
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)


Then when I run apt-get dist-upgrade I get this error:

apt-get dist-upgrade

The following NEW packages will be installed:

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Done all this I assume?


Cheers,

P.S.: Moved to the DSL Forum for better exposure.
