Agreed about the off-topicness, but thank your for replying regardless :-)

Yes, i copied over the '/etc/apt/sources.list' file as well, and when I 
ran 'apt-get update', I saw it grab all the headers from the different 
sources, but running something like "apt-cache search htop" or "apt-cache 
search openvpn" yields no results :-(

No, it only has one entry: for the main repository.
