How to install packages from old stable Debian releases


Hello,

I have a debian 3.1 Sarge server which is working brilliantly. I want to be able to install rsync using apt but the repositories reference stable which isn't sarge.

My question is, is there any apt repositories available where we can get packages for debian sarge?

Thanks

These are the versions found on my 'Sarge install DVD'
( final version, summer 2005.) :

/main/d/drsync/drsync_0.4.3-5_all.deb
/main/libr/librsync/librsync1_0.9.7-1_i386.deb
/main/libr/librsync/rdiff_0.9.7-1_i386.deb
/main/r/rsync/rsync_2.6.4-6_i386.deb
( total 261 KB )

It should be possible to find it all here
http://archive.debian.org/debian/
http://archive.debian.org/debian/pool/
http://archive.debian.org/debian/pool/main/
http://archive.debian.org/debian/pool/main/r/rsync/

There are no links to a 'Sarge repo' any more, also
the links for cd's, DVD's are down.

CD and DVD ISO's for 3.1r5 are here.. http://ftp.ch.debian.org/debian-cd/3.1_r5/

if you plan to keep using that old unsupported version of Debian, you might want to grab them..
