Question lenny network mirror

hi guys, thanks for the great job you do.
I installed debian lenny (5.01) with the first and only CD I had downloaded from the web.
But now am having problems installing packages online. it seems all the network mirrors in my /etc/apt/sources.list file point in a non-relevant direction.
So can some please tell me the network mirror that points to the main package repository for lenny so that I can add it.
thanks, in advance

Just put one that is close to you so that it is in the format of
deb lenny main contrib non-free
deb-src lenny main contrib non-free
deb lenny/updates main contrib non-free

also make sure you comment out the CDROM in your sources.list if it's not already commented out.


lenny, main, mirror, repository
