When you add an internet repository, auto refresh is enabled by
default. ...

If you plan on installing stuff from just the dvd, you should disable
all the internet repos and leave only the dvd source enabled. That
way, you'll only see packages that are available on the dvd when you
go into the software manager.

But be aware that if you do give priority to a DVD or CD package
repository, you'll often _have_ to have the DVD or CD mounted to
successfully complete an install even if the packages come from other
sources (the 'Net, e.g.). Dependencies on packages from the original /
base system repositories can exist and if they were not installed
already, you'll get an error when you confirm and initiate the
installation (but it's a recoverable error, assuming you can find and
mount the DVD or CD required at that time).
