If you wish to copy some packages from one Arch Linux computer to another (for example, with a slow Internet connection) by using a custom CD, do the following:

  • Create an iso of the repository on a CD-R or CD-RW
  • Mount the CD on the second Arch Linux computer
  • Add a custom repository to /etc/pacman.conf:
 Server = file:///mnt/cd/pkg

Another option is to simply copy the files from the CD into /var/cache/pacman/pkg on the second computer. Pacman will retreive the packages from there instead of the net if the files are up to date.

Yet another option is to create a custom install CD as in http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?t=1387
