Just for completeness: You can also choose "Install from Internet", and add
your path as a "User URL" with the textbox and "Add" button at the bottom of
the "Choose A Download Site" dialog. The difference is that doing it this way
will create a local package repository on the machine you're installing to,
should you want to have one for later when you might not have the USB stick
