No, it does not need access to the mirror, because that's what
fai-mirror is about.
It retrieves all packages needed by all the package_config files in your
configspace, and stores them in the fai-mirror directory - this is then
put onto the fai-cd.

Other things you could try:
* try to check, if the packages that are reported to be missing do
really end up in the directory on which you point fai-mirror.
* try to run fai-mirror with verbose options and see if it's telling a
* also, mount the fai-cd and look if you find the packages there (sorry,
I don't remeber the exact path now)
* look deeper in the logfiles of the FAI installation - maybe you find
error messages earlier before the software install errors that point on
things that go wrong.
By the way, which FAI version are you using?
