First you need to enable the sources you have. Delete the "#" on every one of the "deb http://...." lines (although you might want to leave the "hoary-updates" ones alone for now, they'll give you errors if you enable them. Harmless errors, but annoying).

Alternatively, you can just go through Synaptic. See here for more.

(Also, be aware of the differences between the different components)
