Debian PowerPC KDE 3.1

Your Web site says that it's possible to install KDE 3.1 via apt-get on 
Debian systems, and provides an /etc/apt/sources.list entry to do so. This 
entry, though, doesn't work correctly on a system running Debian 3.0 on an 
iMac (Linux for PowerPC). Specifically, it returns the following errors 
when I type apt-get upgrade:

Err stable/main Packages       
  302 Found
Ign stable/main Release       
Failed to fetch  
302 Found
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
W: Couldn't stat source package list stable/main 
- stat (2 No such file or directory)
W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems
E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones 
used instead.

Looking at the Web site, it appears that apt-get is trying to get a file 
called Packages, but it doesn't exist; instead, the site has Packages.gz. I 
hope you'll look into and correct this matter, or provide instructions on 
fixing the problem if it's a local configuration issue (my APT 
configuration is quite typical). Thanks.
