where to find apt-get links?

Hello there.
I am running knoppix 3.6 and i am wondering about where to find links to put in my apt-get sourcelist. I have copyed links from but only a fraction of them seems to work. When i run apt-get update most of the time i get the message:

could not connect to ....the link.....

so my question is, is there some other page whith links to apt-get sources which is more up-to-date?

The unofficial APT repositories
I use quite a lot of repos from this list and they all work.

No you can't these are debian specific repositories.
Repositories you could use with Fedora Core would start with "rpm" instead of "deb".
There are a bunch of repositories out there for Fedora Core however.
Do you currently use the Fedora.US repos or the ones from Dag Wieers?
rpm fedora/3/en/i386 dag
