OK I'm going to put in the UK centric stuff in my sources list.=20
My default is below

deb http://libranetlinux.com updates/2.8
deb http://libranetlinux.com security/2.8

deb ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian sarge main contrib non-free

deb http://non-us.debian.org/ sarge/non-US main contrib non-free

deb ftp://security.debian.org/debian-security sarge/updates main contrib
deb ftp://security.debian.org/debian-security stable/updates main =

These are the lines that aren't commented out. There are details for =
stuff which are commented out.

I installed apache during the initial setup. Since I knew that I needed =
to compile MySQL and PHP with certain attirbutes I didn't try using a =
deb. I had the same compilation problem on RedHat and remembered that =
installing apache-devel solved it so I thought that it might be resolved =
the same way with Libranet.

Thanks for all this info, I shall spend the weekend playing about.
