 An apt-get primer

"Most of the time, apt-get works with the Debian online archives, downloading packages from the Internet and installing them. More than 200 official mirror sites exist, as well as dozens of unofficial ones. Depending on which Debian-based distribution you are using, repositories are either entered automatically or selected by you during installation."
