[ubuntu-za] Edubuntu DVD

The University of Pretoria only has the DVD image and not the CD images 
of Edubuntu. As such, I have burnt images of the Edubuntu DVD. I 
gathered from other documentation that with the 8.04 release I should 
install Edubuntu on top of the normal 8.04 Ubuntu. As such I now have a 
working 8.04 system with VLC, the DVD music libraries, Opera and Skype.

It would appear that that Edubuntu DVD is a complete system that should 
be insalled alone without using the 8.04 Ubuntu disk. What would be the 
procedure now to avoid doing an install from scratch? I ask as I would 
have to download again the various files from Medibuntu and Opera should 
I install from scratch and I am installing on a home computer where 
broadband is not available.

A related question would be on how to go about installing a whole 
directory of deb files at one go without having to install and resolve 
dependencies individually.

Thanks for any help.
