If I copy the cd to a partition as above, will this make it possible to 
apt-get an application that is not included on the cd (quanta plus) without 

Is there any other way (preferably easyish) of adding an application without 
remastering?  I have several partitions that are permanent that I can write 
to (one of which I use as home, others I use as data partitions), from a 
previous broken linux installation.
