They are on the dvd. But  you may have to check out the software sources config 
to make sure that the cdrom is enabled. it isn't enabled by default because 
most people don't keep their install disk in the drive all the time :)
Once you enable the cdrom there, and refresh, you should be able to install 
packages from the disk
