Is there a way to install RPM's (packages) locally: i.e. download them from Windows, save them to NTFS partition (or burn to CD) & install from the CD-ROM drive after booting into openSUSE. Prefer the latter method to install RPM's / programs (if poss in openSUSE Linux), the way it is done in Windows, instead of d/ling from the net.

Dual-boot Windows XP SP3 with openSUSE 11.
