Loading Trinity without internet (Debian)

Have to load Trinity on a new machine with Debian 6, with internet - no 
problems. Also have to update some machines running deb 5 KDE where there is 
no internet and have a identical machine with internet access. Update no 
problems (reload with wad of DVD's), not sure how to load Trinity

My linux/unix knowledge is not good although have used linux as a prime 
desktop for 12 years but with not much debian experience.

Only idea at present is to run
apt-get -d install desktop-base-trinity kde-trinity >tdeload.
followed by
/var/cache/apt/archives to a DVD then - 
on another machine to HD at /var/cache/apt/archives

put /var/cache/apt/archives in sources.list
apt-get -install desktop-base-trinity kde-trinity

cd /var/cache/apt/archives
dpkg -i  desktop-base-trinity
dpkg -i kde-trinity

redo tdeload. as script, in order, for dpkg

There is probably a better/easier method which I haven't thought of and don't 
want to find problems which involve satphones 
($$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ worse than that seattle mob)
