I'm currently having problems with my arch linux installation, forgot to select a few packages but in the guide they never mention which key do I need to press to select/deselect the packages in the installation screen.

I used to select them but it's been a long time, I don't remember much anymore =/

Or, if there is a way to make pacman recognize the cd as a container of packages that'd be great.
