Iceweasel is Firefox. Debian had to change name and logo, otherwise same.
Just began using IM a few weeks ago. Pidgin connects to Aim, Yahoo and Jabber fine.
Only had to enter name and password for Aim. Password wrong??

Firefox - is rebranded to iceweasel in debian for DFSG reasons. Its NOT a fork of firefox, just the name and icons are changed.
Lenny is good for desktops and laptops when you can kind of babysit it, meaning that sometimes there are big changes in updates. The stable release only gets security updates -which is great for a fire and forget server. The daily build will probably be very buggy at times. Whereas Lenny is most likely more stable than Ubuntu at any given time.
I don't use Gnome, so I can't help much with the look and feel of it. Have you ever tried KDE?

Thanks. So all I have to do to get sid, is replace lenny's repos with the following?

Is there a way to get gdebi working in lenny again?

Consider gdebi, synaptic, and equivalent unnecessary GUI tools to be training wheels from your Ubuntu "child's play" introduction to Linux. When you were a child, childish tools and attitudes were normal. You are now using Debian, a distro for grown-ups. It's time to put away childish things.
