If you are using Debian Wheezy then you need to set the repository acccording to the last table here using the rt-preempt version
You should then be able to select JA14 from the package manager.
The instructions on that page describe editing a sources file, but you can also add the lines to the package manager via the synaptic GUI.

Please advise on how to get the package, and then where I can read docs on how to configure it (or do I just run pncconf?)
I then ran pncconf to create a new config from scratch instead, but when I try to click forward button it gives a prompt saying that if I selected tandem axes I must specify a master stepper, however, I do not see where I can do that so I am stuck.
What do I do?

Hoping that you kept the converted files...
Can you zip-up the whole converted config folder and attach it to a message? It looks like there might be something wrong with the config conversion script that I need to fix.
I homed all the axis and it seemed to work fine. I then homed again and after homing the first axis the program froze.
I will mess with it some more and see if that was an unrelated anomaly. Once I killed the process and restarted it seems to be working fine, not sure what caused the crash, is there a debug file anywhere?
