apt-get online question

I would suggest using the netselect package.  Assuming it is not already 
installed, use; 

apt-get install netselect

Then  run;

netselect-apt stable    (or testing or unstable as the case may be).

This will generate a new sources.list file in the directory from which you run 
the command.  If you then want online sources only copy this file to your 
/etc/apt/ directory and run apt-get update.  If you want to add the online 
sources to your cd sources you need to add the lines from the new 
sources.list file to the existing one in your /etc/apt/ directory, then run 
apt-get update.

Hope this helps.
