I installed from one of the unofficial minimal cds out there.  I
selected only the security updates when asked about sources so my
list only contains that one link:

  cat /etc/apt/sources.list
  deb http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main

What does a normal or working sources.list look like?
Then I can edit as needed.
