    It is in the Gentoo handbook.

    Anyway as root, mount your cdrom then type the following:

    ls /mnt/cdrom

    export PKGDIR="/mnt/cdrom/packages" (If it is in a directory)

    export PKGDIR="/mnt/cdrom"

    Now install a package you want by typing:

    emerge --usepkg kde (This is an example)


    Refer to the handbook for more details or type:

    man emerge
    man portage
    man ebuild

    You can also make it stop emerging if it can't find it on CD, like this (just taken from the manpage):
    Code:
    emerge -K package
    or, it's doing the same if you run:
    Code:
    emerge --usepkgonly package
