Im not sure i fully understand but from the looks of it you want to use the
online repos instead of the cd.  In order to do that you need to edit

other  repos that you do need.  Im sorry but off the top of my head i cannot
remeber whether they are already uncommented but if they are not just
uncomment the ones you need.  By the way in order to edit the source list
type the command "sudo vi /etc/apt/sources.list"  you might look up the
basic vi commands if you dont already know them as it can be somewhat
