Edit /etc/apt/sources.list. The format is quite simple and you should ahve no problems. Different menthod; use 'apt-setup'.

Thank you. But what I still met problems.

I have tried to add http://apt.unl.edu/ to it. It telled me that http://apt.unl.edu/ could not be connected. What's wrong?

I did these:
rpm http://apt.unl.edu/ redhat/9/i386 os updates freshrpms
When I do apt-get update it shows:

Err http://apt.unl.edu redhat/9/i386/os pkglist
404 Not Found
Ign http://apt.unl.edu redhat/9/i386/os release

At this server, pkglist* files are in /apt/9/base, so change 'redhat/9/i386' to 'apt/9' and it should work.

Yeah! It works.
Thank you very much.

And by the way, how can I know whether I should use "apt/9" or others?
