Selecting a package from another source

Hello, i've a little problem with the apt tool:

I add 2 CD's to the /etc/apt/sources.list:

apt-cdrom add
(I change the CD-ROM)
apt-cdrom add
Then i try to install the stable vim package doing:

apt-get install vim/stable
All is ok, but it install the vim package from the second CD-ROM i added, I know that the first one has the stable vim package too, and i would like to install it from the first CD-ROM added. That's all.

This depends on the order how the sources are in the sources.list file.
Cd1 has to be before cd 2 in order to get the installation package from there.
