Without a modem you are a bit stuck.  Your best bet might be to look
for a Freedom Toaster (http://freedomtoaster.org) near you.
Alternatively ask a friend to download the required packages.

The problem is that you could compile Lazarus on another computer and
copy over the executable, but you will still not be able to compile
and link any LCL applications on your own computer. The *-devel
packages are required for that.

I sometimes use MSEide like described above. In a pinch, I can use the
MSEide executable (because it ships in binary format) as a fancy
editor, but to link a new project you still require the *-devel
