Here's how you edit it:
# editor /etc/apt/sources.list
Here's my sources.list:
deb stable main
deb-src stable main

deb etch/updates main
deb-src etch/updates main

deb testing main
deb-src testing main

# deb unstable main
# deb-src unstable main
Hope this helps. If not, what's my suggestion missing?

open the file /etc/apt/sources.list in a text editor? knoppix usually has a bunch of sources listed...
