Re: Merging all 30+ Debian CD's onto hard drive



Florian,

You assume correctly I inserted;

      deb file:/mnt/maddog2/debian etch contrib main non-free

into /etc/apt/sources.list.

Thank you for pointing me in the right direction, I'll get your
suggestion a try and see what happens.

Regards,
Michael
