Changes to Adept?

I can't say why it changed, but I can tell you what chenged :)

The CD-ROM is still in the /etc/apt/sources.list file, the ressource
where apt / aptitude / adept get their list of repositories from.

Open the file ( /etc/apt/wources.list) as root (e.g. in the "Run
Command" window  type: kdesu kate /etc/apt/sources.list) and put a
pund sign ( # ) in front of the first line where it says
deb /cdrom
or something similiar.
That should get you rid of putting in the cd to install apps.
