I use the following script based on apt-zip that can easily modified
according to your needs.
if [[ $1 = "list" ]];
mount /dev/fd0 /apt-zip;
apt-zip-list --medium /apt-zip --aptgetaction dselect-upgrade
elif [[ $1 = "inst" ]];
mount /dev/cdrom /apt-zip;
apt-zip-inst --medium /apt-zip --aptgetaction dselect-upgrade
echo "available options: list, inst";
