Hi, apt on my Debian Lenny seg faults every couple of times when i try to install something. I tried everything! I removed almost everything from sources.list, i removed the apt cache but still it gives me errors. Why is this happening? What's causing it?

Did you verify apt? I.e, check md5 sums to make sure that the binary is right. Try reinstalling apt.
Also, try a trace or strace of apt and see where/why it segfaults. Post the results here.
Another option is to run apt in gdb. Install gdb and run
