Question RPM to Debian package

I am looking at Xandros for my desktop. I noticed it adds debian packages and not RPM packages. IS there a converter utility out there to convert between the two? Also is there a utility out there that shows all the dependincies need for a certain RPM package?

Good News, you can install rpm packages in Xandros. Xandros has an update utility which allows you to select the source and allow you to download deb or rpm packages and install them automatically.......even better, it works
