    The Apt HowTo is a great resource. Have you looked it over yet:

    http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/ap.../index.en.html

    Here are some mirrors:

    If you want sources, the first step is naming the distro (ubuntu, debian stable/sarge, debian testing/etch, an RPM based distro etc.).

    For ubuntu, you should check the ubuntuguide site (the latest ubuntu is http://ubuntuguide.squarecows.com/doku.php )

    For debian, maybe check out http://www.apt-get.org/ they have a huge list
