|oh btw what happened to the original oldstable mirror for the U.S. I never could find sndconfig under it after getting synaaptic to work.(the mirrors posted aboved saved my soundcard) thanks.|
Glad I could help
It seems the US mirrors (and most other mirrors by the looks of it) appear to have taken down Woody (Debian 3.0, the version of Debian DSL takes it's deb packages from), perhaps to move it to their archive mirrors. If you followed the advice of those on the front page, and simply changed the sources.list to draw from stable instead of oldstable, you were actually downloading deb packages for Sarge (Debian 3.1). Sarge packages are likely to be different from packages for Woody, and so some packages might be missing (like your sndconfig) or incompatible (like my cron). The mirrors I posted above are still hosting Woody, so their packages work with DSL better than the stable packages from the US servers.
