RE: putting cdrom into sources.list


deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 r3 _Potato_ - Offical i386 Binary-1

That is the line in my sources.list but of courses yours might differ
depending on what version of Debian you have installed.

man sources.list is your friend:

       cdrom  The cdrom scheme allows APT to use  a  local  CDROM
              drive  with  media  swapping.  Use the apt-cdrom(8)
              program to create cdrom entires in the source list.
