i am about to install ubuntu on one of my pal's computer,who still uses an awfully slow dial-up connection.so its impractical to install updates online because of the slow connection.moreover,he wants some software like VLC to be installed which can't be done online for the very same reasons.isn't there a way to make a software disc containing such software and install it using the disc?
