Here is one possible solution:

sed -n -e 's|\(^.*://[a-z.-]*\)/.*|\1|p'  file

Probably, all your problem are in forgetting to put back delimiter '/'
It works for me:
> cat > try.t
>nawk -F/ '{ print $1"/"$2"/"$3; }' try.t

fpmurphy: your solution does not works for me some why.
>sed -n -e 's|\(^.*://[a-z.-]*\)/.*|\1|p' try.t

The tag does not works. Whithout tag it works:
c> sed -n  's|^.*://[a-z.-]*/|lll_|p' try.t
c> alias sed
bash: alias: `sed' not found
> which sed

Any idea why?
