you can add things to your apt repository list if the default things available aren't enough.
Things can go wrong though.... installing aptitude is never a bad idea. (other than space)
apt-cache search whatever
(where, "whatever" is what you are searching for)
apt-get install whatever
(there are a few posts on this thread of me doing this with examples)

Thanks. Yea, I know a little bit about dpkg and apt-get becasue I chose this distribution becasue it was more better to control and didn't eat so much performance.
That's to costly for me because I am Windows user and why I should backup in an virtual system when I can backup the debian.ext3 with Windows too. But thanks that you had an another alternative when i maybe switch to Ubuntu or like this.
