Well, I try to answer. But please answer followings first:

What exactly you want to do?

What specific software you want to install?

What version of Sabayon you have? Since current version of Sabayon used different method of installation.

Sorry about taking so long to get back to you, I don't have the internet anymore, but I have sabayon 4.1 64 bit, and I was wondering if it's possible to install a program or application from an iso or existing cd. Kind of like synaptic in debian. This is due to the fact that I no longer have the internet, otherwise I would download them. But any help is greatly apreciated, thanks.

we don't actually ship a package DVD of the sort you are asking for - there are still several ways to lift software off of the install DVDs, but the easiest way is to just choose "rescue upgrade" off of the DVD's installer - this should force all the DVD software to install on an existing Sabayon install. If you really want only a few packages and don't have dependency issues, then the fastest way to do this is probably by using quickpkg. A quick overview (with gcc as an example) can be found here.
