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...
