    Reset Sources.list

    Hello,

    How can I reset my sources/repositories ?
    I made some bad changes and I just would like to restore it to default.
    Is there a command I could type.
    If not could someone provide me to a link a a copy of the sources.list or someone could even show me
    I have Ubuntu 9.04 Server Edition

    Thanks,
    Dillon

    I checked that link out... it doesn't look terribly easy. It looks more like a way for developers to register their custom repositories with the community. It doesn't look at all like a tool for newbies to correct their errors. Am I missing something?
