Ok got it all working, but I've got a new problem (the story of my life 
lol). When running synaptic, it's been closing randomly on me. Here is the 
error message konsole gives me:

(synaptic:2568): Gtk-CRITICAL **: file gtkwidget.c: line 1827 
(gtk_widget_hide): assertion `GTK_IS_WIDGET (widget)' failed
Segmentation fault

I have no idea what that means =)

Run mousedrake, or see /etc/X11/XF86Config-4's mouse section,
should be something like

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier  "Mouse1"
    Driver      "mouse"
    Option "Protocol"    "IMPS/2"
    Option "Device"      "/dev/psaux"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

Umm... probably diskdrake could do something (even non-harmful)
for that, or add something like this to /etc/fstab:

/dev/hdaX /mnt/win_d ntfs defaults,uid=YOUR_UID 0 0

Seems that right now Captive NTFS is being packaged for ALT,
so... :)

Yep.  Since there are no updates/Compact/2.3 yet (as the distro
itself hasn't been released, though 20040219's snapshot seems to
be "mostly fixes" (and OpenOffice.org 1.1.0).

classic (and optionally non-free) is enough -- it includes all
the other components.

Try this (or via synaptic):

# apt-get install zsh

If it says "no way", then post the output of this here:

grep -v ^# /etc/apt/sources.list | grep -v ^$
