You probably have only the content of the CD in that apt repo, try adding :

#deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 r0a _Sarge_ - Official powerpc Binary-1
(20050608)]/ unstable contrib main

deb http://ftp2.fr.debian.org/debian/ stable main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp2.fr.debian.org/debian/ stable main contrib non-free

deb http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main contrib non-free

You should have the first line and the last line, right ? Add the second, and
then read the apt-cache man page :)
