Problem on installing ubuntu-desktop package in offline mode from bootable linux Pendrive

Hi, I have installed Ubuntu 11.04 server on my personal laptop as dual boot with Windows Vista using my bootable ubuntu ISO pendrive.
After doing googling, I came across with following commands to install GUI



Now, since I have no internet connection configured for my newly installed linux, so I avoided first 2 commands and just executed the third one only as

But unfortunately that didn't worked because it says package not found.
Any idea or suggestion, I believed that desktop package would be there in my bootable pen drive. Is package missing or that needs to be downloaded from internet? If from internet, then I have a primary task to configure Internet first then come back to this task?
Please suggest

I think apt-get requires an apt server connection. However, if you can find the package(s) you want to install on a local drive, you can install them directly using the "dpkg" command. The apt-get utility is actually just a driver for dpkg that can fetch packages from a server.web-based
