APT on SuSE 9

Hi could use some advice on this.
Pretty new to Linux and wanted to use APT to ease my out of my rpm-hell.

So I install it with my YaST and try to run the apt-get update but it gives me the following
linux:/home/mooler # apt-get update apt-get: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory linux:/home/mooler #
Now I've search for the and it is here /usr/i486-linux-libc5/lib/ but how do I get apt to recognize it?

Any ideas

Try this:

Don't download the library is in the package librpm4.deb. Download from (hit i386 button). Install it with dpkg -i exact_name_of_the_package.deb.

However, I don't know if you have the program to install deb-packages.

Hope this will help, I don't have any experience managing rpm with apt-get.
