slackpkg update. Please, edit that file and

Im new to slackware. I just installed 10.2 and had a few issues but a fet edited files fixed that .

I just installed slackpkg and when I try to run it, it says

You don't have any mirror selected in /etc/slackpkg/mirrors
Please, edit that file and uncomment one mirror. Slackpkg
only works with ONE mirror selected.

And I cant figure out how to "uncomment one mirror" I dont know what uncomment is or how to do it ???

I've looked all over this forum and could'nt find any info so I hope that the answer to my question not only helps me but any one else that has this,,,,, well brain fart

Thanks to every one

uncomment = remove the # character at the beginning of the line
