Hello Charles,

You can do all this on the one line, as in:

deb http://debian.uchicago.edu/debian/ lenny main contrib non-free

Then do:

You will have to ensure that you have saved the changes after editing the file, also, otherwise it will simply revert to it's former state, which is what sounds like is happening.

  but I'm still only seeing the stuff in main.

  The thing I'm looking for at the moment is the info pages
for emacs.

I don't know about this as I'm one of the lucky ones that uses Vim, but I should suspect that those should be in main anyway?
