I was wondering if any of you could perhaps point me to some generic "database dumps" used to fill begining databases.

I am wondering about good locations for this in general. Specifically though I am looking for stock market data, nothing like current price, I just need like a csv dump of symbol,market,industry,(description if it is not asking too much)

Like I said, any data dump site for this in general is appreciated. Trying to save myself hours or days of hand jamming stuff in.

That's a fantastic question -- I've always written short dump scripts to populate tables for this reason, because I've been unable to find a reliable source of snapshots anywhere. If anyone know of some, I'd be very interested too.
Seriously... if people don't start reading this before posting, I'm going to consider not answering at all.
