    in the drive '/cdrom/' and press enter
    **********************************************************

    I have the cd-rom in the drive and the cd rom works well because I installed the OS with it. I also uncommented out the default repositories in /etc/apt/sources.list.

    Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Steve

    It's a temporary failure, so it's possible it now working again. If not: what's in your /etc/resolv.conf?

    There was a syntax error in my hosts file. I looked it over twice before saving it but I still didn't catch it.

    Thanks for the reply.
