Shit. Did I write "www.blueyonder.co.uk"? That makes me look *really* 
stupid. What I actually put in my sources.list was 
"http://debian.blueyonder.co.uk" ... which still didn't work but it at 
least it doesn't make look *as* stupid :)

What's the deal with the spaces? I take it those entries tell apt what 
types of package are available at that repository?
