When installing gNewSense, it's best to use the actual gNewSense
installer rather than installing Dapper and then installing gNewSense
packages over that. Is there a reason you're using the Dapper
installer rather than one of the gNewSense installers?

You can find the gNewSense installers (There are both KDE and Gnome
installers) and you'll want either of
the 1.1 images.

Once installed there will be a taskbar applet notifying you of
updates. In the command line interface you can issues the commands
"apt-get update" to check the repos for updates and then "apt-get
dist-upgrade" to upgrade the packages you've got that are behind.
