You sure can add more repositories. You will need to edit the /etc/apt/sources.list file. You can do so like this:Code:
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.listLooking for a distro? Look here.

I'm not exactly sure. I mean getting into the Linux world has been amazing. There are so many utilities and programs available, and mostly free. I like being able to just open up Adept, browse for different stuff, then use Aptitude to install it. The search ability is amazing too, because if I am looking for programs pertaining to a certain thing like AIM I can just search it. Any repositories that are available would be nice. I want to gain a large listing so when I need software or libraries I don't need to go manually installing. I think I can honestly say anything I have wanted so far has been in a repository, even all the customization stuff on KDE-Look.org!! Actually something I do need is software pertaining to DVD burning. I had a program that would do the decryption for me on Windows, but now I have nothing and can't find anything that works. Any resources?!?! LoL

generate sources.list through source-o-matic and replace it with existing. i would suggest you to add repositories carefully. most of packages are available in universe, multiverse and backports.
