Or a local copy on harddisk perhaps.. what the Linuxcare rescue CD does
is simply try to mount all standard devices (hd[a-d]*, sd[*, scd*). This
takes very little time, and since the kernel will autodetect iso9660 and
ext2 it works perfectly.

If you check for each mounted device it there is a /debian or /dists
directory you would probably have a simple method to detect CD's.
