Am not sure if this is the right place to ask these questions, apologies if I have chosen the wrong place.
Have a HD install of dsl 2.0, with apt/dpkg and gnu utils installed via mydsl.
Everything works fine.
Would like to install two further utilities:
Available in other distros (kanotix, feather) and a great way to save an image of a working dsl HD install before further tinkering!
A dockapp that will monitor my adsl usage, written for my provider.

So, I thought I would try changing the /etc/apt/sources.list to use the 'testing' packages. After editing the file, ran 'apt-get update'.
Once again tried the 'apt-get install partimage'. Still didn't work but different error:
Decided that the "This is often bad" comment in the message should not be ignored.
Also tried again to install the wmium dockapp but got the same result as with the oldstable package set.
Would greatly appreciate any help, suggestions, explanations (gentle!).
