Just use the Adept package manager. In the 'manage repositories'
you'll find the security entries. If they are greyed out, just
uncomment them. Them run update. Piece of cake.
Personally I prefer the Synaptic Package manager. Just _
sudo apt-get install synaptic
When the security repos are enabled, you will get updates
atomatically - the little round alert on you taskbar.
Ron, I don't know about the Paraguay Post Service, but rather than
spending a week on the download (phone bill ?) I'll gladly send you
the DVD - I can download the whole rigmarole in a few minutes).
Just mail me your address...
