Oh, I see. No, it is not that easy. The cdrom has to have an apt
database which is what apt-cdrom uses. Of course it is possible to
generate that, I just mirror the current database and package collection
to the image. 

Obviously it is also possible to download the rpms and update them
manually (but you may miss a dependency because those are not explicitly
stated in the web pages).
