Sorry, Craig, but I didn't see a REPOSITORY OF APTIFIED WBEL4 PACKAGES
at that location -- but thank you for the effort.
Additionally, the packages I see at
http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el4/en/i386/SRPMS.dag/, the reference Dag's
stuffing into the apt.conf in those apt packages seem to be his own
packages; again, not exactly the official RPMs I'm needing here, in
addition to not quite a practice I'd endorse except at gunpoint.
As I said, the effort was good but the result wasn't right, exactly.
Anyone else with a better lead?
Because some things are all-the-time jobs!
