deb http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian etch main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib non-free

That's all you need. 
By using "etch" instead of "testing" you make sure that you really get
etch - otherwise you would get the new testing distribution once etch
is stable.
You only need an deb-src entry if you want to do something with the
sources like building your own packages.
