You can download RPM packages from a website such as:
even using a machine running Microsoft Windows, transfer them to diskette or CD/DVD, then copy them to your Linux machine. This will be a time-consuming process, if you think you need a lot of packages. An alternative method would be to use the services of a company that burns custom CD's. One such company is:
It should be possible to have Guillaume and his staff to put all the packages from main-updates onto CD's, per your specifications, at a very reasonable price. I will be investigating this myself in coming months, since I have a very nice working installation of Mandriva 2007.0 installed and I would like to have all its supplemental files on CD. By the way, I bought my installation discs from the above-mentioned company and I was very satisfied with the service provided.
