after you boot a frontend with the kernel/boot CD, on the first
graphical screen you see, click the 'Network-based Roll' button. the
default server for your x86_64 machine will be
'build-x86-64.rocksclusters.org'. this server is in our lab and it has
all the v4.2 x86_64 rolls.

no, you can't do that. but, if you can boot off the USB DVD, then you
will be able use your USB DVD to add rolls.
