How to install packages onto Ubuntu without internet?

A few weeks ago I installed Ubuntu 9.10 (32-bit) onto a machine with Internet access, so it was easy for me to run the following commands to install OpenSSH and portmap:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install openssh-server
sudo apt-get install portmap
But now I have just installed Ubuntu 9.10 (64-bit) onto a machine without internet access. How do I install openssh-server and portmap onto that machine?

you would have to use a computer WITH internet access and either a cd(dvd) burner or a flash drive, download the packages and either burn them to your cd(dvd) or copy them to a flash drive and then install them using dpkg

Keryx ProjectUpdates for offline Linux users -

Welcome to Sushi, huh? package downloader for offline GNU/Linux systems -

Or use apt-zip
Description: Update a non-networked computer using apt and removable media
These scripts simplify the process of using dselect and apt on a
non-networked Debian box, using removable media like ZIP floppies and
USB keys.
One generates a `fetch' script (supporting backends such as wget and
lftp, in a modular, extensible way) to be run on a host with better
connectivity, check space constraints of your removable media, and
then install the package on your Debian box.
