Some testing also noted that /etc/apt/sources.list includes the

No, it isn't. If you installed from CD-ROM, that may be because you
bought a CD-ROM from some CD reseller because your internet connection
is paid for by the minute and you don't want to have to download too

Or you may not have an internet connection at all.

If you don't want the CD-ROM as an install source, it's pretty easy to
edit sources.list and throw out the CD-ROM URI.

Sorry. I wasn't clear. I'm installing from the businesscard installer CD.

Everything you say is true for the full CD (or DVD) install set, and I agree. But for the businesscard CD it's not. It didn't used to do it. Why was it changed? Is it possible to make a distinction at this point between the full CD set and businesscard or netinst CDs?

IMHO, requiring a newbie to edit sources.list is not user-friendly.
