apt-get and broken CD layouts


When I was new to debian, I made a hamm CD that is severely broken in
its directory structure.

# ls /mnt/cdrom
binary-i386 disks-i386 upgrade-i386

# ls /mnt/cdrom/binary-i386
Packages. Packages.gz devel hamradio net tex doc ...

So, binary-i386 is complete.

My /etc/apt/sources.list says
deb file:/mnt/cdrom/binary-i386/ /

apt-get update works, but (for example) apt-get install joe tries to
install from
which clearly does not exist.

Which line do I need in sources.list for my broken cd?

Any hints will be appreciated.
