Tried apt-get to download the latest kernel but it seems that it doesn't use http/ftp but only searches on my CDROM. Where do I configure so that it searches for packages using http/ftp?

What is in your /etc/apt/sources.list file? Mine is below. I am guesssing you either have apt configured to check your CD-ROM, or you are running apt-cdrom instead of apt-get.

If you change your /etc/apt/sources.list file, you must then run "apt-get update" (or "aptitude update"; some people prefer aptitude over apt-get) before "apt-get install $PACKAGE".
