Re: how to install without internet connection?

That's exactly right, you want to download all the files and directories that you see there.

Teleport pro is a windows utility that will do this, but it's commercial, wget may be your best option if you have access to a linux box or if you can use google to find an alternative, that would work too. wrote:
