Debian sources catalog


Is there some catalog or someting to distinguish and choose sources for sources.list file in Debian?

Currently mine are
Code:
deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.3 _Lenny_ - Official i386 DVD Binary-1 20090905-08:48]/ lenny contrib main
deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.3 _Lenny_ - Official i386 DVD Binary-2 20090905-08:48]/ lenny contrib main
deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.3 _Lenny_ - Official i386 DVD Binary-3 20090905-08:48]/ lenny contrib main
deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.3 _Lenny_ - Official i386 DVD Binary-4 20090905-08:48]/ lenny contrib main
deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.3 _Lenny_ - Official i386 DVD Binary-5 20090905-08:48]/ lenny contrib main
deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.3 Update DVD 20090907: i386 DVD 1]/ lenny contrib main non-free
but I want to use EXACTLY the same from internet - for the same version.

Also what mean non-free, contrib, main and other parameters?
