Default nmap package obsoleted?

Hello, I'm trying to install nmap, and so I did "apt-get install nmap",
but I get this:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Package nmap is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package nmap has no installation candidate

when I do "apt-cache pkgnames | grep nmap", I get nmap.

googling shows me that nmap is at
http://packages.debian.org/stable/net/nmap.html, but I get "No such package"

my sources.list file show:

#
# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 r3 _Etch_ - Official i386 DVD
Binary-1 20080217-11:31]/ etch contrib main

deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 r3 _Etch_ - Official i386 DVD Binary-1
20080217-11:31]/ etch contrib main

deb http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib

I did an "apt-get update" but that didn't work.

Please help. Thanks!

try adding the following to your sources list :
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ etch main contrib
deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ etch main contrib

then run apt-get update and try to install nmap.

also see:
http://packages.debian.org/etch/nmap
