  plenty of ways to get this done.

  i forgot to mention that i've had media go bad 
(both cds and dvds) and at that point i've also 
had the installer fail because it could not read 
a file from the disk.  copied what i could off
the disk onto the external USB drive and then
used the snapshot repository to get the deb that
was corrupted and all was good.

  spinning rust, usb stick or ssd at least is
more likely to not go bad.
