Hi Alan,

The update DVD contains all the updated packages since the rest of the
set was made. To make use of it, you just need to tell the packaging
system about it. From the command-line as root:

# apt-cdrom add

and load the disc when prompted.

In synaptic:

Edit->Add CD-ROM

and load the disc when prompted.

Other tools will have similar methods.

that DVD when needed.
