Well, I took a chance and downloaded php4 from unstable. It brought down
about 15 packages. It got a little tense, but my machine works better than
it ever did. I got rid of the errors. I didn't install drupal from Debian.
It is easy to do so I brought it down from the drupal site itself. Drupal
is really an application that you just put in a directory.
