The problem here is that unlike previous releases, the shipit CD now lacks
the full complement of packages on the disc. In order to do what you are
trying to do you would need the "alternate" 6.06 CD , which is the
equivalent of the "old" Install CD.

Apparently the way the Desktop CD is made does not use packages, so
apt-cdrom add won't find what you need - at least that is my understanding
of the issue.
