Question Synaptic Package Manager Query?


I have a small query related to Synaptic Package Manager.

I have added all the three Debian 4.0 DVDs into the repository. So whenever I want to install a software I am required to add the appropriate DVD into the DVD ROM to install the software. Is there a way I can permanently mount my DVDs and Synaptic Package Manager will automatically install softwares from those locations.

This will prevent me from tedious job of adding DVDs into DVD ROM every time I want to install a software.
