After it has downloaded everything i told him to from the internet
i am left with the following problem:
When i try to install something :(Krusader , Gaim , ...anything)
i get a lot of failed dependencies.......and if i try to solve one of them ...i get some more.
Is there a way i can download all those packages from the web site automatically...and let Debian solve the dependencies ?
Furthermore...some packages....like kdelibs .....need to upgrade the version that i have in order to work.......they can't seem to be able to do that ....i am left with the option of manually uninstalling the older versions.
How do i do that ?

I assume that you are just tring to install KDE, or do you have it up and running already? In other words, did you tell the Debian installer to install KDE, or looking to add development packages in order to compile/add other applications?
Doing apt-get update assures that Debian has the latest packages in it's database, which will save headaches as you go on.

but configure some more repositories or you can do this under sypnatic tools repositories new
i prefer doing it the text way /etc/apt/sources.list
then you can head over to http://www.apt-get.org/main/
then at the bottom of each entry it will have something like this
deb http://ftp.freenet.de/pub/debian-openoffice/ woody main contrib
now just copy and paste it into /etc/apt/sources.list
i beleive each entry should have a # sign in front of it i did that because the originals did
maybe somebody could tell me what the repository is for debians offical site for testing and unstable
ie on the debian site and then packages there official package list not someone elses
also the more repositories you add the longer it will take to update but then youll get more software on
