My understanding is that the desktop CDs do not include a full set of
packages - which is why the "alternate"  CD is recommended for the
"apt-cdrom add " methods.

( <pedantic> 
should be "alternative CD", in the language I was taught, but never mind ;)

I think a few packages are included on the Desktop CD - they appear to be
in the /media/cdrom0/pool   directory on 6.06 LTS,  here . ( with the
Desktop CD loaded in my first cdrom drive, of course )
