I HIGHLY recommend that you instead use yum because of the fastestmirror
and priorities plugins.  We provide apt in extras, however there is
functionality in yum that I think you would like if you learned how to
use it.

Obviously it is your machine, so you get to "make the call" :D

OK, I just upgraded the apt in the extras Master repository for CentOS-4 to:

apt-0.5.15lorg3.2-1.el4.centos

synaptic is also upgraded to:

synaptic-0.57.2-3.el4.centos

Those changes should be rolling out now and available soon on remote
mirrors (you should be able to get the RPMS manually on
<http://mirror.centos.org/> now).

Thanks,
Johnny Hughes
