Apt-get install

When I use apt-get install command, for example samba install, does that command then invokes search of entire disk to find samba packet or what?

That command, will search from the source list that you add. ex samba install will search samba packages and dependency and install it.
in /etc/apt/sources.list
apt-get update will update packaged files list.
