After installation, my sources.list has a line

deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 r0 _Etch_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20070407-12:15]/ etch contrib main

which is rather confusing since the HOWTO says it shouldn't be there.
The Debian installation seems to have put it there.  Is it supposed to
be someplace else?
