Bliss - thank you both Tiger and Kahless.
Yikes - it works!!! run Root Terminal - navigate via cd .. to /ect/apt and type gedit sources.list - then type #this is a rafkid test - and save the file and reopen it and there it is!
Grief - it has takend four days to do that............still I could probably do it again if need be - so I learnt something today. Many thanks for the nudge in the right direction.
