I hope this helps but I can't give you a step by step.  You can configure the 
shared dvd drive on the lan as a repository and then adjust your sources.list 
to include it.  Then do the upgrade from that repository.

Wait a minute.  That's more complicated than necessary.  If you can access the 
DVD over the lan with your Dapper machine, you can use apt-cdrom to add that 
dvd to your sources.list and use it as if you had a local DVD drive.
