Excuse me?  Of course you can.  You just grab a few tarballs and do an 
install via any one of myriad ways, though preferably via a network
mechanism.  Piece of cake.  Despite having CD media available, I, and
many others, have done *hundreds* of installs precisely this way, on
production machines.  What is so difficult about this?  Might not have
inet access?  Who cares?!  Since this would presumably be a firewall
for other networked machines, why can't you just install via one of
them?  Please don't complain.  Many have gone before.
