Hmmm...I see that I have the el4 version of apt installed. So I removed it
and then installed the centos version. That gave me a centos.list. But then
I did an apt-get update and upgrade and found that my dag.list caused apt
to remove my centos.list, upgrading to the el4 version of apt again. I then
renamed centos.list.rpmsave back to centos.list. Is this a problem?
