[R] R for Debian 2.2

I've recently installed Debian/GNU Linux 2.2. The R package on the debian
website and Official CD is 0.90.x, so I checked cran for a more recent deb
package, with the following result.

homebrew:~# apt-get install r-base
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely 
that the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.

The following information may help to resolve the situation:

Sorry, but the following packages have unmet dependencies:
  r-base: Depends: atlas2 but it is not installable
          Depends: tk8.0 (>= 8.0.5) but it is not installable
E: Sorry, broken packages

Can someone tell me if this is a problem with the deb package on cran or
some problem of mine? I've frequently used apt-get in the past (though not
for R) and had no problems.
