[PlanetCCRMA] E:Couldn't find package

I'm sure this is a real silly question but I just can't find the answer.

I think I have everything set correctly but I still can not get the alsa
drivers to install or even all the audio tools in the core package.  I am
sure it has something to do with my sources.list or apt.config but I'm not
sure what do to about it.

I was able to run a dist-upgrade from the cd's no problem but installs
always result in E:Couldn't find package

I have also downloaded the rpm for audacity and I'm not sure where to put
that to get it to load either.  Even if I did though I am sure it would
error out the same way.

The machine has no Internet connection so I am using the cd's and ftp to get
the files over from a machine that does have internet access. 

I am running RedHat 9 with the ccrma kernel installed and running. Here is
the result of apt-get: 

[root@brewer root]# apt-get -o RPM::Install-Options::=--oldpackage install

E: Couldn't find package planetcc:core

My sources.list read
