Question Trying to add packages of the install CD's


I try to install some packages from the install CD's using the Add/Remove utility in gnome. The install process get to the point where it starts to look for the CD. The CD is in the CD drive and mounted, but I keep getting a Can't find Disk error. Any thoughts as to why this is happening?
