You can place all the rpm packages that you want to install (including their dependencies) on the USB stick and then install them with the rpm -Uvh command.

Here's a list of PCLinuxOS repositories from where you can download the RPMs: http://udmeen.blogspot.com/2007/12/p...tory-list.html

The command is
Code:
rpm -ivh package
Please use the full path to the packages located on your USB stick.

Please run the rpm command as root.
