Right. I've just booted up Debian Sarge, and I don't have 
an /etc/apt/preferences. Doh!  

Ok. I've added the source URL for backports to /etc/apt/sources.list , then 
aptitude update, then opened up synaptic. Wine is there, as a package from 
backports along with all the other backported packages, and as I thought also 
needs libwine as a dependency. Its DL'ing libwine (10.6MB) on dialup at the 

BIG WARNING. Make sure to comment out the backports URL after DL'ing and 
installing Wine, and winelib, putting a # in front of the URL, and saving the 
change. If you don't do this, the next time you run an apt-get dist-upgrade, 
all the packages that you have on your machine, and are marked for updating 
from the backports repo, will be updated, which apart from Wine, if it 
installs ok, is not perhaps a good idea.

libwine 49% done. Nigel.
