CD for network install (Was: Debian DVDs)

And more to it:
    For install to several computers lets automaticly make scripts for
    mirroring _choosed_ packages. Then mirror it and then install from
    this local mirror to any amount of computers.

    BTW, somebody made scripts/programs for partial mirroring based on
    packages selecting?
    This will be _very_ helpfull for organizations where it's need to
    periodically upgrade fixed set of the packages on many computers.
    Main task is a program for such selecting with dependency

    May be there is an apt program that can generate such lists?
Best regards,
