For Free Software:
deb http://archive.debian.org/debian etch main

For Sources
deb-src http://archive.debian.org/debian etch main

Getting contrib, non-free, and their corresponding sources is left as an 
exercise for the reader.

Note that Etch has a number of known, unpatched security vulnerabilities and 
receives no real support from the Debian project.  Moving to Lenny should be 
made a priority; any time spend working with Etch should be (at least) matched 
with the same amount of time pursuing an upgrade to Lenny.

(Even Lenny is "oldstable", but at least you should get 10+ months of security 
support on that and it's the first step in upgrading to Squeeze anyway.)
