MySQL dependency troubles

I have a Debian 3.0 box working at work that I'm planning to setup a small forum on. I installed Apache/PHP etc very simply but having no luck with MySQL.

netconnect:/home/colabus# apt-get install mysql-server-4.1
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  mysql-server-4.1: Depends: mysql-client-4.1 (>= 4.1.8a-5) but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages

netconnect:/home/colabus# apt-get install mysql-client-4.1
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  mysql-client-4.1: Depends: libdbd-mysql-perl (>= 1.2202) but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages

netconnect:/home/colabus# apt-get install libdbd-mysql-perl
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  libdbd-mysql-perl: Depends: perlapi-5.6.1
E: Broken packages

netconnect:/home/colabus# apt-get install perlapi-5.6.1
Note, selecting perl-base instead of perlapi-5.6.1
perl-base is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 32 not upgraded.
I've issued an apt-get update a number of times, and even posted the problem elsewhere with no success on an anwser.

If anyone has some advice please let me know.

Looks like the server that slapt-get uses is down.
Go get the packages listed manually and you should be on the right track. is very useful...

AFAIK is specific to Slackware, however the original poster uses Debian...
