how to download the packages in Debian testing non-free before installing?


how do I download the packages in the non-free section and make them useable by the Debian installer before starting the installation?

The problem is installing Debian on a laptop with wireless only. So I need to dowload all the DVDs before starting the installation, and still the software needed to get the wirless card (Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1030) working is in the non-free section which won´t be on the DVDs[1].

There seem to be (unofficial) CD-images with the firmware on them[2]. Are these the right ones to get? What might be the best way to go about this?
