sources.list for Xandros 3.0

I just installed xandros 3.0 on my homemade box and love most of it. It's annoying that the sources.list file that feeds apt-get only has one entry. I have added the three additional debian sponsored entries from their website, but they still don't contain simple common software like amoraK and KSSH. Will anyone that is using xandros please post a STABLE and WORKING sources.list that contains third party sponsored sources? My current sources.list is this:

**I had to delete the html format because this is my first post and I can not post URL's yet. Please understand the sources were only edited for those purposes; they are not coded that way in the original ;-)

# See sources.list(5) for more information, especially
# Remember that you can only use http, ftp or file URIs
# CDROMs are managed through the apt-cdrom tool.
deb httD:// stable main contrib non-free
deb httD:// stable/non-US main contrib non-free
deb httD:// stable/updates main contrib non-free

# Uncomment if you want the apt-get source function to work
#deb-src httD:// stable main contrib non-free
#deb-src httD:// stable/non-US main contrib non-free

#This is the default source installed with Xandros 3.0
deb httD:// xandros3.0-xn main contrib non-free

Thanks in advance!!

Use this

You can type in whatever software you want, and it'll tell you what sources to use.
