Debian stable vs. testing

Yesterday, I installed Debians current stable version 3.1 rev 4 ‘sarge’ on a vmware. After the installation, I tried to install python2.4, apache2.2, subversion1.4.2 …

I could install the python2.4 package, but the package python was only available for python2.3. After creating the links (e.g. python -> python2.4) manually, I tried to get the apache2.2 package. To use debians apt for this job, I had to add the testing sources to the apt list. After this step, he tried to upgrade my system with a new kernel and some new tools. Enough for me! ;) I went to the debian package page and downloaded the testing net boot cd.
