If you don't have a CD-ROM then how do you plan to copy the CD onto the hard drive? If your server is on a network, it might be easier to just install it via the network instead of putting Deamontools on your server. Call me paranoid, but I'm a little leary of putting freeware programs on my servers if I don't have to. It's hard to tell what kind of affect the program can have on other applications/processes.
