Yes, you can.  You can download the cd images using jigdo (if you have a 
working Debian computer with a network), or just download the full iso, 
then run apt-cdrom to add them to your sources.list file.  You can then 
update and upgrade your system.  See http://www.debian.org/distrib/cd for 
detailed instructions on the many ways to obtain CD images, if you can't 
use jigdo for some reason (like it isn't installed or your only Debian 
machine is the one without networking).

You can also use the CD you installed from to install extra software. You 
might want to look into apt-zip, though I don't have any experience with
