CDROM source not found when Installing Kernel on Dell300m

I am trying to install Debian 3.0 r1 from the 7 CD set which I just
purchased on a Dell Inspiron 300m laptop. The PC boots from the first
CD and I get as far in the install as partitioning my drive. When I
try to "Install Kernel and Driver Modules", the CDROM does not appear
in the source list, only floopy, hard disk, mounted partitions,
options etc appear.

I tried to exit to a shell and mount the cdrom but was unsuccessful
trying with source device = /dev/hdc1 as well as other devices. The
cd drive is a combination CDR and DVD reader.

Can anyone offer advice on how to point to the source CDROM on my
Dell laptop in the Debian install process?

Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.
