APT-GET ???? Please help.

The reason why i post the thread was that i heard something good about apt-get on dependencies problems.
SO, i want to try it out see how is it. Well, the installation went great.
however, the man page got me confused. perl-Video-DVDRip which was all cause by the dependencies problem. almost one month had past, all i am doing was finding, download and installing small thing which was needed by it.
I want to use apt-get to install ""
so, i did
[root@antec install]# apt-get install
and it says????
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
E: Couldn't find package

What's wrong here? any ideas? i also tried /mnt/root/install/transcode-.....
but i got the same thing..

my /etc/apt/sources.list file contain
"rpm redhat/9/i386 os updates freshrpms
rpm-src redhat/9/i386 os updates freshrpms"
which i think was useful since i am using rh9.0

If apt in Redhat works anything like debian then you should only need apt-get install transcode you would not need the version number or the .file_extension. The package system would get the latest version of transcode available to it and it's dependancies then install the programs.

thanks for your answer, however i am not that kind guy who replying on X all the time. I only use X to play game.

i will try that later, since i had messed my computer when using apt-get on dependencies on glibc .
so i will do that when i got it uninstalled.
