You can open your sources.list and comment out the line referencing the
source CD-ROM.  I believe it is the first line.

>From a command prompt, it would look like this:
~$ sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
Password:

Then once you have the file open, add "##" to the start of the following
line:
deb cdrom:[Ubuntu 5.10 _Breezy Badger_ - Release i386 (20051012)]/
breezy main restricted

That will make it look like this:
## deb cdrom:[Ubuntu 5.10 _Breezy Badger_ - Release i386 (20051012)]/
breezy main restricted

and then all will be well with the world.

kisses,

jimbo
