[ubuntu-za] Using a CD as the sole repository

Correction- I am using a Hardy 8.04 live DVD. So is it possible to use
apt-cdrom add with a live DVD?

When I try and update the package list from an Ubuntu 8.04 DVD alone
without using the online repositories I get the following messages: 
(This is even after I have used synaptic to made the CD-ROM 
recognizeable by APT.)

Failed to fetch cdrom:[Ubuntu 8.04 _Hardy Heron_ - Release i386
(20080423)]/dists/hardy/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz  Please use
apt-cdrom to make this CD-ROM recognized by APT. apt-get update cannot
be used to add new CD-ROMs

Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones
used instead.

When I try and use sudo apt-cdrom add from the command line I still get
an error:
phillip at phillip-desktop:~$ sudo apt-cdrom add

My fstab file is as follows:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
# /dev/sda5

relatime,errors=remount-ro 0       1
# /dev/sda6

# /dev/scd0       /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8
0       0

I did check the integrity of the disk from the opening menu and there
was not a problem.

Does anybody have any suggestions as to how I should now proceed?

Thank you.

Regards

Phillip
