Under system>admin>software sources check CD as repository and refresh.Put Cd in the drive and try to install package you want.They should be picked up from CD.

Tried that but it keeps saying 'put disk in cdrom' then says 'mounting cd'
'searching for packages' then 'unmounting cd' , Still cannot find any packages to download from the cd

I know for sure that you can install build-essential package from CD.Under system>admin>software source be sure that you have checked CD as repository.When you try to install build-essential it will ask you to put CD in drive.Do that and you will be able to install that package from CD.Sorry, I donīt know ohter packages you can install from CD.

the software packages are in the directories /pool/main and /pool/restricted on the CD.

They are organised into folders according to name.
