i have only '/usr/share/doc/apt/examples/apt.conf'. content is:

	// $Id: apt.conf,v 1.43 1999/12/06 02:19:38 jgg Exp $
	/* This file is a sample configuration file with a few harmless sample

the content of sources.list btw is:

	deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian		\
		stable  	main	contrib 	non-free
	#deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian-non-US	\
		stable/non-US	main	contrib 	non-free
	deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian		\
		etch 	main	contrib 	non-free
	#deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian-non-US	\
		etch/non-US  main	contrib 	non-free

	#deb http://linux.csua.berkeley.edu/debian/	\
		stable  	main	non-free	contrib
	 deb http://security.debian.org/ 		\
	 	stable/updates 	main 	contrib 	non-free
	#deb http://linux.csua.berkeley.edu/debian/ 	\
		etch 	main 	non-free 	contrib
	 deb http://security.debian.org/ 		\
	 	etch/updates main 	contrib 	non-free

i replaced 'testing' with 'etch' today and haven't used apt-get since.

how do i tell which version (testing/stable) i'm running?
