What does "/etc/apt/sources.list" look like? (It contains info about the servers to download software from in Ubuntu and related Linux distros)

It should be lines similar to these:
deb squeeze main contrib non-free
deb-src squeeze main contrib non-free
deb or deb-src, then a URL, then a list of components. Also, lines starting with a # don't count, 'cause they're comments.
