Probably after some faulty misconfiguration I lost some lines in
/etc/apt/sources.list so I am not sure now what is the proper content
of it. In fact, I started to use squeeze a couple of years ago by
installing the first ten CDs of its release 6.0.1a and by time
upgraded to 6.0.10 and at some points I also added backports and
squeeze-lts to the sources list. However I am not sure now if the
system is updated properly, so would appreciate advices on the most
appropriate content of /etc/apt/sources.list

Secondly, having in mind that squeeze-lts will be retired next
February, I've been thinking on upgrading this comp to wheezy. The
main issue is that is an old box (Celeron II 400 MHz, 224 meg RAM,
most of the internal cards are ISA, etc), so I wonder if it would
accept the upgrade. According to some websites, it seems that should
be possible, however I would like to hear advices on that. This
machine is primarily used as a firewall-router for the other two
comps in the home LAN, and it has an ISA dial-up modem Zoltrix and
USB wifi connectivity on it, Xfce, icedove, etc. All of that works
with squeeze-lts although as expected the comp is pretty slow. I
wonder if upgrading to wheezy (or wheezy-lts if available) would be
feasible here, or I should look for other options. Thank you.
tried searching for more RAM? there's also some small probability to get
better/faster CPU for the same socket, e.g. Pentium 3.
I'm afraid xfce won't be very fast on such machine, switching to LXDE
_could_ help (not sure tho).
However, if the machine acts as FW/GW, you don't really need X there...
