It's all mirrored and indexed on manx as well:

Unfortunately the guy who mirrored to jurassic.nl changed the
directory structure on everything, so there's no good programmatic way
to map his mirror into the database on manx.  I attempted to email him
about it but got no response.

The most important thing for using physical CDs is to have a CD-ROM
that supports 512 byte sectors or it won't work.  Plextor CD-ROM
drives support this and some Sun CD-ROM drives as well.
