1. If you can get to a network: change your /etc/apt/sources.list file to
point to the 'Net and download from there.

2. Mount the iso images using the loop device (the CD-Writing HOWTO
gives the best information) and apt-cdrom add them one at a time.

Apt-get update and use whichever package manager you wish.
