apt-cd setup [was Re: Re: initramfs-tools fixed (maybe)]

I'm putting this back on the list as I don't install from CD's and
can't really answer this. 

I will say though, that if you haven't read the installation docs, you
should do so as this is surely answered there.

okay. Have you registered the cd's with apt? I don't know how this
works, but you have to have the cd's listed in your
/etc/apt/sources.list and you may have to also do some other mojo to
ge tthe recognised. i'm thinking its something like apt-cd or
something like that.
