There is also one wery nice tool which is GUI for searching packages from the repository and showing package information. Tool is called Debian Package Search, surprising isn't it? :D
http://packagesearch.sourceforge.net/

If you use Debian Etch or Debian Lenny, here is how you can install the Debian Package Search:

# apt-get install packagesearch

Here is how you can start it from gnome Desktop:
System -> Administration -> Debian Package Search
