More Sarge Installation Angst

I'm attempting to install sarge from an iso I downloaded with jigdo. I burned it to cd using nero on my M$ machine. My first problem arises after the base system has apparantly installed correctly, after the reboot, during base-config. At one point it begins to look for index files for the apt install, the first problem is it doesn't automatically recognize my cd as being the official snapshot of sarge for some reason. No problem, so I kindly direct it to /dev/hdc, it looks, apparantly finds something. It then attempts to get security updates from wherever it likes to do that, can't get them because I don't have a hookup to the net on this box yet. So it goes to a blackscreen where the words "Updating 'Available' File..." which it never completes, so it's a CTRL-C to get out of that one. So after all this, I finally get to the package selection. Now, whether I choose tselect (I think that's what it's called) or aptselect (ditto) I get the same message when it comes time to install the packages after I've so arduously chosen them: It asks me to insert the "Debian GNU/Linux testing _Sarge_ - Official Snapshot Binary-1 (20040424)" which I can only assume is the one I have seeing as it came from an official mirror. I'm not sure whether it has to do with how I burned the CD, whether it is named correctly, whether some problem with the serial number of the CD has arose or what. Any help would be appreciated.

You can quit the base-config, configure your internet connection and change the sources.list to use the internet repositories. Restart the base-config onces connected.
