Ubuntu: install packages from CD

Recently I installed a system with Ubuntu Server, and neglected to install openssh-server.  While I had terminal access, I didn’t have internet access, so I simply couldn’t run apt-get to install the missing packages.  I was stuck in the data center (virtually stuck, anyway) with a decision:  Spending another 40 minutes re-installing the operating system, or somehow install the packages from the installation disk.  I chose the latter, and while it took more time than just re-installing the system to figure it out, it will surely save me time in the long run as this is most likely not the last time I will encounter this missing package problem.
