You need the CD.
Or is the site is in your AD you can have someone put it in a CD drive of a machine there.  After that RDP into the machine.  Share out that drive calling it CD for its share name.  Then on the server you need SMTP on that needs the disk map a network drive to that machine in Explorer.  \\computer name\CD.  If a trust is was configure between the sites then use \\computer name.domain.com\CD.  If it is a totally another site such as a client site then you need the CD.

Have another SBS installation? VPN in, and bit by bit the files over by copying them into a local "install" directory. Slow, but it works in a pinch.
