Install Abiword on Damn Small Linux


I was recently given a 13-year-old computer and DSL is the only distro that would actually run smoothly on it. I plan to use the computer to type papers for school, save them to a .doc on my flash drive, and print them on my main Windows computer.

My question is: how would I install Abiword on Damn Small Linux? I don't have an internet connection on that computer. The only way I could get data onto that computer is on a CD or USB flash drive.

I don't know what kind of package management DSL has but I'd just throw the abiword sources (and the sources of it's dependencies) to the flash drive and install them from there. What's the hard part here?

You can get Abiword from here:
http://magicErmine.com/demos.html

This one supposed to run on any distro with kernel >= 2.6.9
