cannot install softwares from repository in debian lenny/sid


hello everyone...
my problem is a few days ago i reinstalled Debian Lenny from a dvd which i had earlier used.After the installation was over i installed gcc and g++ compilers using synaptic package manager without any problem...
But today when i tried to install certain other softwares (like firefox,amarok,vlc...)i got an error message stating "pl insert debian cd/dvd in /cdrom and try again..."but actually the dvd was inside and mounted in /media... when i tried to change the repository i found an message like this
Code:
Repositories changed
The repository information has changed. You have to click on the "Reload" button for your changes to take effect
and on doing so i get an error message like..
Code:
W: There is no public key available for the following key IDs:
9AA38DCD55BE302B
wat sholud i do...??

I would disable the DVD and just use a Debian mirror. As root, type "nano /etc/apt/sources.list" then locate a line with a reference to your DVD, either delete this line or put a # before the line to comment it out. There should be more lines in there which point to a Debian mirror. Press ctrl and x to quit and press y then enter to save. Now type "aptitude update" and give it another go.

If you don't fancy editing the file, try the menu: system - administration - software sources.

You don't have any proper lenny repos in your sources.list. You only have security updates enabled. You can't do any updates nor install any new software with that list of repos. You need to add more repos. choose some mirrors from those listed here:

cheers,

Now that your issue is resolved, please type out full words when posting.. abbreviations and contractions you've made up make it difficult to read your posts and understand what you are saying.

these are NOT english words

tanq
de
pblm
u
wat
pl


Thanks for understanding.
