Hey all,

I've been running a small shop of edgy installs 
for quite a while, love Xubuntu and sure want to 
stay with it, but right now I'd like to get a 
couple of the machines up on some Koffice apps, 
specifically Kplato and Kivio, and but can't get 
these with

apt-get install koffice

This results in a lot of 404 errors. Are my 
installs so out of date these packages are no 
longer available?

My questions is two fold. First, can I get Koffice 
from another repository, or do I need to upgrade 
to hardy heron now?

If so, is there a way to upgrade from edgy to 
hardy heron without losing the current machines' 
configurations, locally stored email, etc?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
