Yes, there is always going to be possible problems. This sort of situation is
poorly handled/supported by Debian in general and Ubuntu in partitular --
Debian/Ubuntu is pretty much geared towards machines that are connected to
Internet with a decent bandwidth.

RHEL on the otherhand, uses install media containing a complete repository and
creating a local mirror of updates is a trivial matter of rsync'ing the
repository to removable media. This makes RHEL (and CentOS/Scientific Linux)
the ideal choice for a machine that is either off the Internet or connected
poorly to the Internet (like my home machine with only a Dialup Connection).

I'd would really like to recomend to the OP to NOT install any verison of 
Ubuntu on a non-Internet connected machine.
