Question uninstalling apache, postgresql?

I recently installed Debian Linux v3.1 (sarge) and i got apache and postgresql installed and now i want to remove them. For this i ran the command: aptitude remove <each-module-name>.

Now even after running this, when i run: dpkg -l | grep apache i find following packages:

rc apache2-common 2.0.54-5
rc apache2-doc 2.0.54-5
rc libapache2-mod 1.999.21-1
rc libapache2-mod 4.3.10-16
rc libapache2-mod 3.1.3-3

and for Postgres when i run the list command, I still find the following packages:

rc postgresql 7.4.7-6sarge1
ii postgresql-cli 7.4.7-6sarge1
rc postgresql-con 7.4.7-6sarge1

Can anyone please tell me how to remove them completely so i could manually compile the new version of Apache(v2.2.0) and install MySQL(v5.0.1) .

Thanks in advance...

I think it's something like aptitude purge apache postgresql
