Adding Apt4RPM Repositories

I am running Apt4RPM and Synaptic - which is nice.

I notice that under RH9 there are only 2 repositories listed and they appear to offer the same files as my install cds (I think). How do I add extra repositories? I've had a wander through postings on LQ and tried a few Google searches and I can only find RH8 listings.

Can anyone help?

And should one of you point me to a Google search that I should have thought of and works, I'll hang my head in shame and mumble "thanks".

this is standard in /etc/apt/sources.list (on debian)
deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 r0 _Woody_ - Official i386 Binary-1 (20020718)]/ unstable contrib main non-US/contrib non-US/main
it's the entry to apt from the woody cdrom, maybe you can figure out how to use the RedHat cdrom's with apt

Check, it will tell you what to do.

Unfortunately, for reasons I am currently investigating/attempting to solve at the moment, packages must be rebuilt for each version of each distro. As RH9 is very new, there won't be many packages for it yet.
