Debian mirror site set-up via sources.list?


Hi All

How do you set up the sources.list file for updates from a mirror site.

I've tried the following (South African mirror):

deb http://debian.mirror.ac.za/ debian/dists/Debian4.0r4a main contrib non-free


And received the following errors:

W: Couldn't stat source package list http://debian.mirror.ac.za debian/dists/Debian4.0r4a/main Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/debian.mirror.ac.za_dists_debian_dists_Debian4.0r4a_main_binary-i386_Packages) - stat (2 No such file or directory)
W: Couldn't stat source package list http://debian.mirror.ac.za debian/dists/Debian4.0r4a/contrib Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/debian.mirror.ac.za_dists_debian_dists_Debian4.0r4a_contrib_binary-i386_Packages) - stat (2 No such file or directory)
W: Couldn't stat source package list http://debian.mirror.ac.za debian/dists/Debian4.0r4a/non-free Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/debian.mirror.ac.za_dists_debian_dists_Debian4.0r4a_non-free_binary-i386_Packages) - stat (2 No such file or directory)


Thanks.
