I think this is a know issue with cdrom/dvd drives and apt-get. Maybe
trying to use apt-cd will help by re-adding the dvd?

I fooled around with apt-cdrom and tried to re-add the dvd, but didn't
seem to work.  I tried manually re-mounting the hde device to
/media/cdrom and that did seem to work -- but it was mounted only for
the duration of the apt-get install and then strangely it unmounted
itself.   VERY ANNOYING!!

Thanks for the help.
