Well, either way, it seems to be getting _everything_ from the internet
and ignoring the CD.
Update manager -> upgrade
didn't know the CD was there. Aborted upgrade when it said 5 days
then I did
# apt-cdrom add
# apt-get update
# apt-get dist-upgrade
now it should know the CD is there but still only downloading from
internet - as far as i can tell.
also since tried adept updater, adept, update manager and synaptic....
am I doing something wrong? Or is the software on the CD already
essentially out of date?
