sudo cp /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.broken

Here is an example for Debian Squeeze:

nano /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://archive.debian.org/debian squeeze main
deb http://archive.debian.org/debian squeeze-lts main
deb http://archive.debian.org/debian-backports squeeze-backports main
The second line will fail with an "expired" type message, so you also need to add the following in /etc/apt/apt.conf (create it if it doesn't already exist):
nano /etc/apt/apt.conf
Acquire::Check-Valid-Until false;
