    Code:
    deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ lenny/sid main contrib non-free
    Replace Country code (us) with Country code of yours and check that in Web browser.
    This is Source in India.
    Code:
    http://ftp.iitm.ac.in/debian/
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Thanks, I'll give that one a shot and see if it has everything I need. I remember before I only had to add a couple of repos... I already have so I'm hoping this is all I will need.

    Dang, it didn't work I get this output at the end of running apt-get update:

    Code:
    Failed to fetch http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/dists/lenny/sid/non-free/binary-i386/Packages.gz  404 Not Found [IP: 64.50.238.52 80]
    Reading package lists... Done

    W: Couldn't stat source package list http://ftp.us.debian.org lenny/sid/contrib Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/ftp.us.debian.org_debian_dists_lenny_sid_contrib_binary-i386_Packages) - stat (2 No such file or directory)

    W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems
    E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
    I hate when apt-get tells me to run apt-get update to correct the problem when that is what I just did!

    I also just realized that I must have installed Linux with the wrong CD because I'm running Etch, not Lenny/Sid like I used to have. Is it a big hassle to update from Etch to Lenny/Sid?

    I have updagraded to Lenny/Sid from etch only.
    Try these sources:
    Code:
    deb http://ftp.iitm.ac.in/debian/ sid main non-free contrib
    deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org/ sid main
    I will search for US source.
    Execute this to upgrade:
    Code:
    su -
    apt-get update
    apt-get dist-upgrade
