Sure.  Here's what I recommend at the moment:

# os       Fedora Core
# updates  Fedora Core updates
# extras   Fedora Extras
# kspei    Steve's random packages, usually destined for Fedora Extras
rpm http://apt.luci.org fedora/3/i386 os updates extras
rpm-src http://apt.luci.org fedora/3/i386 os updates extras

rpm http://rpm.livna.org fedora/3/i386 stable testing unstable
rpm-src http://rpm.livna.org fedora/3/i386 stable testing unstable

# Macromedia (flash-plugin)
rpm http://sluglug.ucsc.edu/macromedia/apt fedora/3 macromedia

That stuff in /etc/apt/preferences makes it reasonably safe to enable
other apt repositories (like freshrpms).

Oh, and make sure you are using apt from Fedora Extras and nowhere
