Thanks... I should have noticed :-)

That said, I just installed on my hardy system and seemed to go just fine:

ggmain3 at ggmain3:~$ sudo apt-get install netatalk
[sudo] password for ggmain3:

Selecting previously deselected package netatalk.

Starting Netatalk services (this will take a while):  atalkd afpd papd.

So, perhaps purge & reinstall as Brian suggested, only using:

sudo apt-get purge netatalk
sudo apt-get install netatalk
