The link is

ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/

Use packages with "arm" in the title

I don't see any apps with "arm" in the title...

Not all apps have been compiled for the arm processor so if the app you require hasn't been done you will need to recompile it.

Just look in the package directory, there should be a bunch of .deb files with endings like sparc.deb, ppc.deb and arm.deb
download the arm one. Also a .deb is just like an ipk, so if you want to install it you will need to just go like this:
CODE
# mv package.arm.deb package.arm.ar

# ar -x package.arm.ar

# tar -cvf package.arm.tar data.tar.gz control.tar.gz debian-binary; gzip package.arm.tar

# mv package.arm.tar.gz package.arm.ipk


That will make it installable with ipkg, if it still won't install with ipkg then you will have to upack it again and then just unpack the data.tar.gz in it and install it by hand.
