As people already told you before:

1. Debian 3.1 (Sarge) is obsolete an not supported anymore.
2. Still, package sources for it are available (unmaintained, but
   availale). They pointed you to the specific source and provided you
   a line for sources.list .
3. The version of aptitude included with Sarge is probably a bit buggy.
   (did I mention it's ancient?), but apt-get / apt-cache should work
   reasonably well.
4. Did I mention that Debian Sarge is obsolete and you should use Lenny
