To add the ubuntu cd to your sources.list you can open "Software Sources" (System>Admin>Software Sources) and on the 2nd tab press add cdrom, making sure you have the ubuntu disk in the cdrom
You can also use http://packages.ubuntu.com/ to find the needed packages you need to install.
Edit: The above is for hardy. If you are using gusty open Software Sources and on the first tab tick the add cdrom under "Installable from cd-rom/dvd"

What should I do if when clicking the link for "Software Sources" it doesn't open? Locks up... I guess? The black-circle cursor goes for a while, then disappears. Other items won't open either, like the Synaptic Package Manager. I've tried rebooting.
edit: fixed that problem (turned out to be a hostname issue)by following the instructions here:

Open your /etc/apt/sources.list and add: (or something like that-depends on your version and/or architecture)
deb cdrom:[Ubuntu 8.04 _Hardy Heron_ - Release amd64 (20080423)]/ hardy main restricted

gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
remove # at the begining of line Thanoulis posted.Save and close file.
sudo apt-get update
This way synaptic will ask you to put CD in the drive and that is what you want.
