[if you have a debian lenny install you can add the pure:dyne 
repositories (see below) and  aptitude install pure:dyne which will 
install all our packages plus our rt kernel
(ardour is part of the pure:dyne meta package)

# Debian GOTO10 repository

Once you have set your environment correctly, you need to install the 
keys from the signed repositories used by the pure:dyne project. If you 
do not do this, the packages will appear untrusted.

aptitude update
aptitude install debian-puredyne-keyring
aptitude install debian-multimedia-keyring
aptitude update
