yes.  You can install internet explorer on a machine that is not connected to any network at all.  Further than that though, I am pretty sure you can install MSDEV and it will install any component that it needs from the CD.  So you should be able to install it without having anything else added to it.  No network is needed.

If you are getting an error while trying to install it, then post up what that error is here.

Hi ,SD_Adept.

 Since I am a failure I'd like to know in detail how to install only VC++ (I'm not
interested in VisualBasic or Visual J++) and if the Internet Explorer is in already
included in the CD's.I'll give you the points then.

what you need to do is exactly follow the instructions that the setup program gives to you.
whether your computer is connected to network doesn't matter.

what you need to be careful is:
don't use the internet connection wizard to try connecting to internet when you install your ie5.
