What is "it"?

Do you want to add the CD to the list of packet repositories?
If so, you should check if the CD is not already listed there
(/etc/apt/sources.list), which is very likely if you installed from this
CD. If an entry for the CD is missing, use apt-cdrom to create one.
man apt-cdrom

Do you simply want to install software using the command line?
If so, use apt-get or aptitude
man apt-get
man aptitude
