I couldn't make sense of the instructions about adding the updates CD either. If you do exactly as set out in the magazine, you do indeed get an error message. I think something has been left out of the instructions.
I eventually got the CD to add by fiddling around. I seem to remember that after clicking on Add custom and ticking Removable device and browsing for Path or mount point, I had the cdrom listed in the left hand column. I then double-clicked on cdrom and clicked on Add, which added "main-updates 13/07/05" in the right hand column. I had no idea what I was supposed to put in "Name" so I put Main Updates CD4(cdrom4) and for "Path or mount point" /mnt/cdrom/main_updates was already entered. I selected All packages, by update availability, Upgradeable. This installed 95 packages from CD4. There was nothing listed under Addable.
Sorry if this is not very clear, either - but I can't remember now exactly what I did.
