Red face Add / Remove Packages won't find the CD

Hi Guys

Sorry to bother you all, I'm a bit of a newbie to linux here.

I am trying to install Kernel-Devel from the add/remove packages tool

However when I go to do "update" it keeps asking for the Linux 4 Disc 3 CD, of which I have inserted, I made the cd from burning the ISO from the RHEL site.

However it doesnt seem to recognise its in, I accessed the CD from the linux box and installed the Kernel-DEVEL rpm and seeemed to go in ok.

Then done an up2date --get kernel-devel from a terminal window and that seemed to have got the latest oen.

Then if I run the command

rpm -qa|grep kernel devel

I get the results back :- kernel-devel-2.6.9-78.EL

So I take it that means its installed.

But just int he add/remove application it shows as not installed, and I'd like it to say it is, so that I know it is.

Can any one help , how can I can either make it see the CD or use a work around so it pulls the RPM's from the net?.

I also dumped the RPM needed into /usr/src/RPMS/kernel-devel.rpm

but still asks for a Cd.

Thanks for your help guys
sorry if this seems a stupid question.

I am using Linux AS V4 x86_64-as-4
