Any one using apt-get to update KDE on RH 8.0?

I found an earlier post that pointed out how to use apt-get to down load and update KDE on RH 8.0.

I followed the instructions, but the address for the KDE components keeps timing out ( RHREL kde3 kde3-extras)

I replaced "RHREL" with "8.0", so that should be ok. The first line for the getting the updates seems to work just fine, but this next line just cannot connect.

So wanted to know if there was another place to try to download the KDE 3.1.1 via apt-get ?

Here's the link to the info for using apt-get:

Thanks to anyone who can shed some light on what might be wrong, be it the site is down or changed or possibly too many people trying to connect(??)
