apt-get sources.list

I have Sarge on my box but if I check my sources.list file, the only entries there are

deb testing main
deb-src testing main
deb stable main contrib non-free
deb stable/non-US main contrib non-free
deb stable/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src stable main contrib non-free
deb-src stable/non-US main contrib non-free

I'll get a lot of 404 errors when even trying just a simple apt-get upgrade or installation of php4
Has anybody some other mirror I can use / insert which has almost every package available ?

apt-get update runs without problems btw....

Found already a source

Try these:

deb sarge main contrib non-free

#Debian Non-US
deb sarge/non-US main contrib non-free

#Debian security updates
deb sarge/updates main contrib non-free

Note that they are all ftp. I don't know if that helps, but I never have a problem with them.

I'll try them too, thanks :)

You might try blocking off (#) those you suspect of hanging. Some sources are un-reliable.
