Okay, I've been learning more shell stuff. I used the "more" command:
# The primary network interface
iface eth0 inet static
# dns-* options are implemented by the resolvconf package, if installed
The error message I'm getting in apt-setup (after selecting HTTP as my source, United States as my country, ftp.us.debian.org as my mirror, and nothing as my proxy) is:
Failed to access the Debian archive
While trying to access the debian archive using the information you provided, the Debian package management tool, apt, returned the following error. The questions will be asked again.

I tried running apt-get update, but it still gives the same error. What gives?
