All repo lines added according to manual, including non-free.
Apt-get update from init 3 OK.
Apt-get dist-upgrade yields these errors:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
libc6 : Depends: libc-bin (=2.13-10) but 2.13-18 is installed
libc6-dev : Depends libc6 (=2.13-18) but 2.13.10 is installed
apt-get -f install will not fix errors.
I cannot go forward setting up this machine.
Please help.

Your Debian mirror might not be completely in sync yet, try another one http://www.debian.org/mirror/list - or wait until it is done.
Greetings,
Chris

#
# you may need to uncomment the deb-src line if you want to get package sources
#
deb http://cdn.debian.net/debian/ sid main contrib non-free
#deb-src http://cdn.debian.net/debian/ sid main contrib non-free
# Debian
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian unstable main contrib non-free
# deb-src http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian unstable main contrib non-free

This is what my debian.list looks like.
I replaced "us" with "de", and still get exact same error.
Shouldn't there be a / after debian in last line?
like so:
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free

Empty the file completely, and put in just: deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free - after that do apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade.
Greetings,
Chris

@slam,
followed instructions verbatim.
Same error.
This is what I see in init 3 (writing from another computer):

Preparing to replace libc6 2.13-10 (using .../libc6_2.13-18_amd64.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement libc6 ...
dpkg-deb (subprocess): data: internal gzip read error: '<fd>: data error'
dpkg-deb: error: subprocess <decompress> returned error exit status 2
dpkg error processing /var/cache/apt/archiveslibc6_2.13-18_amd64.deb (--unpack):
subprocess dpkg.deb --fsys-tarfile returned error exit status 2
configured to not write apport reports
Errors were encountered while processing:
/var/cache/apt/archives/libc6_2.13-18_amd64.deb
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

From init 3:
apt-get clean
apt-get autoclean
apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade -f
That hosed the damn error!
Later on will switch back to us instead of de.
Is it OK to leave just that one line in debian.list?
Please note that syntax in manual is without the / after debian.
Error?
Thanks!

Yes
      Code:
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ sid main contrib

Should be used in the US, if you need non-free
      Code:
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ sid main contrib non-free

Still unclear:
What is correct syntax, with or without / after debian?
Like so:
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ sid main contrib non-free
OR like so:
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian sid main contrib non-free
Have tested it both ways and there seems to be a difference.

No, there is absolutely no difference (beside that you have to type one char more or less to "copy" this line)

You can try it "at home" in your own shell:
      Code:
cd /etc   # VS.
cd /etc/
