Debian installation CD with currently installed packages.

I installed Debian Etch with the net-install CD.

I have downloaded and installed a few packages like Xorg,Gnome-core,KDE-core, Anjuta,Xine, Xpdf and GIMP.

I want to install a similar system on another box(it is not on network).

How can I make a Debian installation CD containing the downloaded packages as well ??

That doesnt look like something I would like 2 get into right now.

Still, I got all those *.deb packages in the apt cache.
If I copy them 2 a cd, can I set the package source to CD-ROM in Aptitude? (To resolve dependencies and other stuff)
Plz tell me how...
