what should be in my sources.list?

Forget it, stupid me didn't see the debian specific forum. I found my answer

I installed the latest Debian from the 2 dvd's I downloaded,so all i have in my sources.list is my cd drive. I'd like to put the right repositories in my sources.list file (main/stable whatever, I don't want unstable stuff), but I don't know what I need. Can anyone help?

Thank you, I didn't even see the Debian-specific forum or I would have checked there first.
