I just installed apt-0.5.15lorg3.94-3.fc9.i386 with
fedora-package-config-apt-9-3.transitional.noarch and had no problem
using the application.

Have you run "apt-get clean" yet?

FYI, apt supports rpm, yum, and metadata repositories so you should be
able to add RPMFusion repositories to apt.  (Note: My only complaint
regarding RPMFusion is that the developers have yum blnders on when
they created their install rpm. They negilected to provide for smart
and apt.)
