Welcome to testing (Etch), at least for the moment. As soon as Etch
goes stable, that sources.list is set up to take you automatically to
Lenny. You can forestall that (stay with Etch), if you wish, by
replacing the string "testing" with "etch" now. Then you'll stay with
Etch when it goes stable. I prefer to use the names. That lets me
see what others run into in the upgrade before I jump. YMMV.

They are a bit of an odd crowd. Someone mentioned the other day the
single greatest accomplishment of *buntu so far has been vacuuming the
worst of the clueless noobs out of here and into *buntu. No, you
don't appear to meet that specification at all so far. :-)
Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
