artwiz-cursor and xfonts-artwiz problems with apt-get

Hi, I have an ex-Knoppix, now Debian system(apt-get dist-upgrade). Using Apt-get upgrade I keep getting an error from each saying:

Preparing to replace artwiz-cursor 2.6 (using .../artwiz-cursor _1%3a1.3-2_all.deb)...
dpkg-divert: 'diversion of /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/cursor.pcf.gz to /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/cursor.pcf.gz-artwiz by artwiz-cursor' clashes with 'diversion of /usr/X11R6/lib//X11/fonts/misc/cursor.pcf.gz to /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/cursor.pcf.gz-artwiz by xfonts-artwiz'
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/artwiz-cursor_1%3a1.3-2_all.deb (--unpack):
subprocess pre-installation script returned error exit status 2
dpkg: regarding .../xfonts-artwiz_1%3a1.3-2_all.deb containing xfonts-artwiz:
xfonts-artwiz conflics with artwiz-cursor(<=2.7)
artwiz-cursor (version 2.6) is installed.
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/xfonts-artwiz_1%3a1.3-2_all.deb(--unpack)
conflicting packages - not installing xfonts-artwiz

Okay, can someone tell me what's wrong and how do I fix it?
(please forgive any spelling errors in my message because I don't know how to copy text from the shells)

Thank you in advance,

HA! Fixed it! Sorry everyone. I apt-get installed one at a time and it removed one of them, then let me install it again. Thank you people.
