kpackage is a good solution to dealing qwith apt-get - an excellent easy to 
use alternative to dselect:)
much more info in a simpler format for low end users and newbies - and people 
like me whose eyes get tired dealing with dselect menus;)

one thing in debian favour - alien converts rpms etc superbly to debs - then, 
simply kpackage what you want - lovely:))
