As you recommended I added these lines to my /etc/apt/sources.list:

Just to check things out I did "apt-cache search nethack" to see if
everything is working.  It's not.

I get:
W: Couldn't stat source package list [an entry from above] Packages
([a path which I assume is what the listing is a symbolic link to]) -
stat (2 No such file or directory).

I added the lines above the CDrom entries.

What's up?

Please leave this.  It is a filter term.
