Not true. Currently, you can't change an APT-CDROM line in
/etc/apt/sources.list by changing the beginning of it so that it
points to an FTP mirror, because this would make it to point to
unstable, which is currently woody. If you are not very careful, you
may end up upgrading your system from potato to woody, which is not
what you might want. Yes, this is unlikely, but it is even more unlikely
that something breaks if unstable does not point to potato, which
is what I propose.
