The SETI at home Enhanced application for BOINC has been uploaded a few days ago 
to Debian unstable. The name of the package is boinc-app-seti and it should 
integrate nicely if using Debian's standard BOINC data directory (which 
is /var/lib/boinc-client/). If using not the default data directory some 
manual work is needed, consult /usr/share/doc/boinc-client/README.Debian for 
more information.
