I go to the software center, click install under k3b, and within seconds I am greeted with a message that says this:

CD/DVD 'Ubuntu-Server 12.04 LTS _Precise Pangolin_ - Release i386 (20120424.1)' is required

Please insert the above CD/DVD into the drive '/media/cdrom/' to install software packages from it.
