Rather than using FTP to download packages, why not use apt-get? In fact, you may want to look into using apt to update your system.
apt-get install [packagename] (installs individual packages)
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade (updates all packages on system to latest versions for your particular version of Debian)
apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade (upgrades your version of Debian to the lastest version of Debian)
Use the last two commands judiciously (especially the last one) on your older laptop.

Thanks Milan I seem to have it connected now. The message 'connection
refused' from the freenet IP address using telenet was a welcome sign.
Now... I seem to be a newbie at using ftp on the command line. I can
generally do this after a few tries on my eMac. I have done it on my
fedora machine. Rather than just tell me the command does some one know
a good web page for ftp commands that I can study and bookmark.
I am trying to go here and download files
I get the error message 'unknown host'. I think i need some like this
but am not quite sure
oh and happy easter linux people
