Newby ? How to use Search

I'm researching Beagle now. It seems to reference "Breezy", I'm running 
"Ubuntu 6.06 LTS - the Dapper Drake" if that makes a difference.

Is there an index that has to be built first before the Search will work?

Found this link I'd thought I'd share.

I did the Easy Ubuntu install, and enabled the other repositories.

In Applications Add/Remove I only find Kerry Beagle, which appears to be 
only a front end for Beagle.

What's the difference between using Add/Remove and the 
System/Administration/Synopic Package Manager?
Okay, there's one difference, I found and marked Beagle for install and 
then I get a window to mark 12 more file to change. That's given me 
pause. I'm holding off for now. Did I miss something in the Add/Remove 

G'day Ken, how did you install Beagle?
