E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

it proved to be wrong entries in /etc/apt/sources.list

just replace them with these

deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian lenny main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security lenny/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://volatile.debian.org/debian-volatile lenny/volatile main contrib non-free
