Hi Eamonn,

Thanks for the help anyway. I got it working after re-checking my
sources.list and finding out that I hadn't actually uncommented all of
the urls in the file. Sorry about not replying to all, pressed the
wrong button ;)

Anycase, I've pasted my working sources.list for anyone who is having
the same issues. My apt-get is faithfully downloading and installing
mysql-server as I type.
