apt-get and MySQL problem (newbie)

Hi folks,

I'm an Ubuntu newbie and I'm trying to get MySQL installed on the
Warty release. As root I run the following

apt-get mysql-server 

and I expect it to resolve all dependencies etc and begin downloading
and installing (I've updated my sources.list file)

But I get an error saying that one of the dependencies cannot be
installed. When I try install the dependency I eventually arrive at a
package called "libplrpc-perl", which apt-get tells me is not
available although it is being referred to by another package.

Is there any way I can get around this? Should I find this package and
download it?
