You already have a mail server and a desktop machine.  Why not copy the
dvdimage and host a nfs server on one (which will take you about 3 minutes to
set up), and boot off of the cdrom boot.iso on the other; upgrade it.  Then copy
the dvd image to the other, host a nfs server on that, and upgrade it.

Assuming that they are in the same room (or can be brought into the same room)
it won't take any longer to do it this way than it would take to shuffle
all of those CD's around.  Really!
