apt-get and linspire


How can I be sure apt-get is working. I have not been able ot download and install any programs? I also have not been able to get my cnr client to work. I am using linspire oem. I have at@t 2wire and have verified that the fire wall is down on the modem. I would like to be able to use agt-get to install firestarter, and I am not havving any luck. I alos have verified that there is no firewall running on my system. I would appreciate the help.

remove the # for these lines
so it looks like

Code:
deb ftp://ftp.us.debian.org/debian sarge main contrib non-free
deb ftp://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US sarge/non-US main contrib non-free
Then do

Code:
apt-get update
apt-get install firestarter

ftp://non-us.debian.org doesn't work any more
use a mirror
http://www.debian.org/mirror/list
or take a look at
