>From the above errors it really looks like you just have some typos in
your sources.list file.  Here is a woody sources.list, copied straight
from a working machine:

,----[ /etc/apt/sources.list ]
| deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ woody main contrib
| deb-src http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ woody main contrib
| deb http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US/ woody/non-US main contrib

Make sure your /etc/apt/sources.list is *exactly* the same as the one
I have listed above.
