I did untick them but will check again to see it they are still
unchecked. I also unticked the third party mirrors in SS. Ahh, but I
didn't untick the update section tab. After doing it the reload software
did finish without error.  Then aptitude update did read the cdrom.
Still couldn't install wicd.  It wasn't found but was able to
install network-manager and network-manager-gnome again. I haven't had
time to get it connected yet but will try some more.  Thanks for getting
me to check again.
