You, I'm afraid.  You should select multi-CD access in dselect, and
then insert the second CD when prompted.  The second CD is designed
to boot on some laptops that CD 1 won't work for, but the Debian packages
are spread across the two CDs (they won't fit on a single CD); CD2 has
packages files that include packages from both CDs, whereas CD1 only
lists the packages found on CD1.
