Take out the cdrom drive


Hello all,

I have a debian box with a cdrom drive. I want to take this drive out.

In case I need a cdrom later, I think I can smbmount one on
a remote Windows box.

Such case is when I do the apt-get install because it asks me
to insert the Debian Installation Disk-[12] in the cdrom drive.

Question. How can I let apt-get take a look at a different cdrom drive
than the internal one(/dev/hdb)?

Look into /etc/apt/sources.list and comment out the lines beginning with 'deb cdrom:'. You can add similar ones later (using ftp, nfs or any other access method). I don't know which access method you'll use, but the lines will be similar.
