but I'm running on a command line only server.  I don't really want to 
install firefox etc just so I can have a web page automatically add some 
lines to my sources.list.  Can't someone just tell me what they are, and 
I will edit them into my sources.list.  Then tell me what package to 
install so the repository key is installled.
