Where are the repositories for PClinuxOS 2007?

Hi....this is such a noobie question...but dude, where are my repositories?

Or rather where are the repositories for PClinuxOS? I have scanned around their sites etc, but I just can't seem to find any firm answer anywhere. I am used to using ubuntu but have settled on PClinuxOS owing to the gigantic faff I had enabling 3D rendering with a radeon FireGL 9000 on an old Dell laptop with Ubuntu Gutsy. I gave up when I saw the paths....oh never mind. Just that I miss the clarity of Ubuntu's Web presence where it was damn obvious where to look for what.

I have only just discovered that it (PClinuxOS - and it sounds more clumsy each time I type it) uses apt(thank god)!

Any help rendered would be gratefully recieved. Thanks for your time and effort on this one.

Have you looked in the PCLinuxOS /etc/apt/sources.list?
