Ok, we'll go through this step by step. One question first though, and I should have asked this up front. What type of internet connection do you have, if you have one.

1. Edit /etc/apt/sources.list to look like the following example.
Code:
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ etch main non-free contrib
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ etch main non-free contrib

deb http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib non-free
2. Update the local list of available packages.
Code:
apt-get update
3. Install the package.
Code:
apt-get install hylafax-server

I'm not sure what you mean by "delete", but you should have one sources.list file in the /etc/apt/ directory. Just make sure that it looks just like the example I posted above. You don't really need the CD as a source, unless you don't have an internet connection at all.

Using gedit should work fine. The files with a tilda at the end are normally backup files. You can safely delete these. Another question, are you making these changes as the root user, or are you trying to make them as your user?

If you are comfortable with it, vi is a good choice.
