How can I install software or packages without Internet (offline)?

I was thinking of installing Ubuntu on one of my computers for a test run to see how I like it, but the problem I face is that the one computer I wish to install it on isn't network ready.

There's no network card installed and I keep that computer as a safe computer away from any network connections.

The question I have is that is there an ISO I could download that contains all the necessary files for upgrading it to current, similar to the way one would download and install Windows Services Packs offline?

I realize the convenience of doing this online, but what would one do if they don't have an Internet connection
