So I installed version 0.6 and wanted to install apache, webmin, php, mysql, etc.  

For the sources.list file, what is the best setup?
Stable, Testing, or Unstable?

I was thinking doing testing.  It's bad to mix them right?  Otherwise, there will be dependency issues?  Can someone post examples of their sources.list file?  For the next version of DSL why not add more to the sources.list file?  Security files should also be included no?  Thanks.

No, you CAN mix them.  Personally, I run testing (has security updates) and install optional packages from unstable (gimp-1.3, firefox, etc...)

To do this, you need to learn about apt-pinning.  You can read more at... and apt-pinning for beginners

No good deed goes unpunished...

I have installed it and got apt get working but i cant seem to install what i want.
