It was part of the "base-config" package which has been removed from
Etch and Sid. You can install "apt-spy" which is kind of an improved
version of apt-setup: It will automatically pick the fastest Debian
mirror (by measuring the bandwidth that you get from various mirror
sites) and write the sources.list for you.

I seem to remember that apt-setup also allowed you to include CDs into
your sources.list. If you want to do this now then you have to call
"apt-cdrom" directly. (apt-cdrom is included in the "apt" package
