Your sources.list only contains a single entry (that isn't a comment)
and it is for the CD you installed from. Most likely that CD does not
contain the bridge-utils package and hence apt does not know about it.
Certianly the netinst does not.
Add a debian mirror to your sources.list and use that instead of the CD.

Skipping the apt config when doing a netinstall is not a valid option.
Why would you even consider skipping that? It makes no sense.
