You can do it entirely from the command line:

$ @sys$update:vmsinstal tcpip051 dka100:[tcpip_vax051.kit]

The VMS distribution CDs usually have the savesets in the [.kit] 
subdirectory. If you don't see tcpip051.a in that directory, it's a 
PCSA install and you'll need to use PRODUCT INSTALL to install it. The 
release notes should provide pretty explicit instructions.
