Hmm I added (require 'slime) and (slime-setup) to my ~/.emacs file and now
when I first run emacs I get a Lisp Interaction buffer that does tabbing
and  things but it doesn't seem to effect the slime buffer or the buffers
of lisp files I load. Thanks

I'd suggest you try it and/or ask again on the list specifying more
details.  I believe Peter Van Eynde is on the list and he is the debian
package maintainer.
