Installing Cedega 6.0 On Xantros

Let me start off by saying I'm a super-noob in Linux; if you have advice to give, assume that I don't know anything about working this OS at all (for you would be correct). I've been using Windows for 18 years straight; in short, help a brother out!

Anyway, I've been trying to install Cedega 6.0 on my Xantros. In theory, this should work fine, since I had the common sense to at least get the build of Cedega for the Debian Core. However, when I try to install it, I get the following error message:

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
cedega-small: Depends: python-gtk2 (>= 2.6) but it is not installable
Depends: python-glade2 but it is not installable

Now, I tried to install those two dependencies, but they sent me into Dependency Hell; each part of Python requires another part, to the point where I have to install what I don't have using other parts I don't have. In short, it's bad. Someone please tell me that there's an easier way to do this!

Use your system’s package manager to install. All dependencies are automatically determined and installed.

I can't seem to make that happen. I've been going through the dependencies that my package manager has, and I can't find the ones I need. I can find pretty much every other one, though.
