Here's another suggestion if you have Pirut installed.

Insert the CD and if it does not mount automatically then loop mount it.
Launch Pirut, click on Edit->Repositories
Click Add and in the Location textbox enter the
cdrom pathname; like file:///mnt/cdrom. (use df -h)
Type something for the description.
Disable all other repositories listed except the one just added.
