Hmm, I never heard about snack, but Debian potato has a python-newt package,
and this package includes the snack module:

  freefly;23> dlocate -S snack
  python-newt: /usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/
  python-newt: /usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/

python-newt was not included in Debian 2.1, though, but, if you're lucky,
you may be able to install the python-newt package from potato (probably
together with the libnewt0 from potato) on a Debian 2.1 system, too.
