Unhappy Debian apt-get ask about cdrom label


Hey. I just install Debian Jessie without graphical desktop and its my first time using it. So i just wanna install vim on it to start coding.
When i try to do that by "apt-get install vim" i been ask about cdrom label. Why is that? I prefer to install it on my hard-disk.

If you installed without choosing a network mirror you will need to set one in your /etc/apt/sources.list and comment out the cdrom entry.

Hi...

Do the instructions here help? Although for Wheezy, this should work with other versions, too.

Regards...
