253You might find a <e>Package CD</e> on one of our mirrors. This CD is not an
254Installation CD but an additional resource that can be exploited during a
255networkless installation. It contains prebuilt packages (also known as the GRP
256set) that allow you to easily and quickly install additional applications (such
257as OpenOffice.org, KDE, GNOME, ...) immediately after the networkless Gentoo
258installation.
