You don't need to change the cd lines in your sources list, that will stay the
same unless you get an updated cd. If you want to continue tracking etch
after it becomes stable rather than having your etch install become lenny
make sure your sources list deb lines are pointing to etch rather than
testing. I think they use etch by default.

Your running etch now so when etch becomes stable you'll already have it.. :)
I suspect there will be a number of updates before that happens though.
