Unfortunately the install does not support multivolume installs (ie
all the packages yoiu downloaded must be on a single partition, CD or
whatever else).  And Indy does not fit on a single Zip.

If your laptop has a CD reader the best is to pick a RedHat
5..2 from an old magazine and then use the contents of the
"differential" directory to upgrade it.

Or to put the contents in another computer and use the SMB install
(shared disks in Windows).
