Try Dag:

edit(as root) /etc/apt/sources.list (or use /etc/apt/sources.list.d/dag.list)

vi /etc/apt/sources.list
add(press Insert)

### Dag RPM Repository for Fedora Core 2
rpm fedora/2/en/i386 dag

press Esc
type :wq! to save and quit vi.

type apt-get update and that's it.

Ps: This is for apt/synaptic
If you don't have it installed already, type:
apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade
to install synaptic:
apt-get install synaptic
You should now have it in your menu under 'system tools'.

This maybe different on other distros but with FC1 use the command: apt-get mirror-select. That will walk you through the process of selecting which locations you wish to download the apt-get packages from. This list is also used by synaptic which is a GUI tool for apt.

I don't know about yum as I haven't looked into adding source lists for that yet.
