[vox-tech] aptitude problems after a couple dist-upgrades

Hi everyone,

just installed Debian Sarge from some old install media, and performed a 
dist-upgrade twice to get to the unstable distribution.

however, i am not able to install a couple of new packages, namely kde:

#apti   tude install kde


The following packages are BROKEN:
  kcontrol kdepim-kfile-plugins kpilot 


The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  kdepim-kfile-plugins: Depends: libpisock8 but it is not installable
  kcontrol: Depends: libraw1394-5 but it is not installable
  kpilot: Depends: libpisock8 but it is not installable
Resolving dependencies...
The following actions will resolve these dependencies:

Keep the following packages at their current version:
blinken [Not Installed]
kcontrol [Not Installed]
kde [Not Installed]
kde-amusements [Not Installed]
kde-core [Not Installed]
kdeaddons [Not Installed]
kdeadmin [Not Installed]
kdebase [Not Installed]
kdeedu [Not Installed]
kdepim [Not Installed]
kdepim-kfile-plugins [Not Installed]
konq-plugins [Not Installed]
konqueror [Not Installed]
kpilot [Not Installed]
lilo-config [Not Installed]

any ideas on how to fix this? 

also i noticed that this machine calls itself 'debian testing/unstable' -- 
what exactly does this mean?
