debian install problems went away

When I had problems installing podracer among other programs on lenny, it 
was because of the inability of dpkg to actually do clean upgrades and 
clear out old artifacts from earlier systems.  A little earlier I 
installed Linux using Samuel Thibault's mini-beep.iso and once done I had 
no problems installing any of the problem packages.  Also, the celeron has 
a defective cmos which has already caused repeated problems so that slowed 
things down a bit finding out what was really going on.
