Exactly. GPL doesn't require that every CD that ships the package must
contain an installation program, so it is also not forbidden for the
installation program to put additional restrictions on the user.

You are still free to install the software packages as you see fit
if you don't use the installation program that is completely out
of scope of GPL requirements of the individual packages.
