Thanks.  I had no success from trying Neil MacLeod's suggestion of  
changing "mistral" to "gregale" for the Distribution in the  
Application Manager Catalog repository data.

Then looking for xterm in the new Application Catalog, I did find  
osso-xterm-advanced and sorta figured out your recommendation of the  
"green arrow" scripted download routine.  And it worked like a charm.

Now I easily became root and could do terminal operations.  But the  
same Application Manager apt-get snag came up again when trying to  
partition my 1GB MMC card.  This was a step in the HowTo for booting  
from the MMC.

These are excerpts from the terminal (the same error and failed to  
fetch occurred for all six packages to be installed):
/ # apt-get install e2fsprogs
Err http://repository.maemo.org mistral/free e2fslibs 1.37-2sarge1
   Temporary failure resolving 'repository.maemo.org'
Failed to fetch http://repository.maemo.org/pool/maemo2.0/free/e/ 
e2fsprogs/e2fslibs_1.37-2sarge1_armel.deb  Temporary failure  
resolving 'repository.maemo.org'
E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try  
with --fix-missing?
/ #

Is this an issue with repository.maemo.org or am I just missing  
something?  Again your advice would be appreciated.
