There was a failure with the Kubuntu upgrade. I did a backup.tgz excluding etc/apt, and var/lib/apt, and reinstalled the system. The Edubuntu upgrade was good Then Kubuntu failed. 20071016.1 worked, 20071016 didn't It may have been an upgrade for feisty or it may have conflicted with the kde on 1.7. When I added the disk to sources the upgrade option came up I now know this was another program.Since I've gone to terminal added the disks at the prompt, and added edubuntu, Kubuntu, and the 4 debian etch disks. synaptic had 24000 packages, but in sources there was trouble getting a lock. I didn't know why it wouldn't fix on the lock, but I thought maybe it was because I added disks in terminal before I used software sources. I deleted the lock figuring debian may have changed it and pulled a lock out of an early sbackup. it seemed to work.
It had trouble finding a server, but that may have been the connection. I'm going to forget about kubuntu Ultimate 1.7 has a kde environment, and if I find debian etch conflicts, I'll just pull the packages out of the pool and set up a personal repository on another partition. I'm not sure if it was a bug as much as operator error, but I was curious about the kind of disks that could be added, and maybe Kubuntu upgrade was designed for feisty, not when introduced to a gutsy system. If it helps This is the disk that I used and the isp url
