boot with the 9.10 live cd
start synaptic, search for gnome-ppp select install (even if you don't 
have internet access), in the file-menu select create skript to download 
This creates a script which uses wget to download all necessary packages 
including dependencies. execute this script on a pc which has a internet 
connection and wget installed (e.g. any linux pc).

use a thumb-drive or any other storage device to transfer the downloaded 
packages to your pc. --> you are now ready to install ubuntu karmic.

Wish you luck
