apt and caching .deb's

	Apt downloads all the packages and then installs them.  Every RH
and Debian network method I've seen does this.  Is there a way to download
a package, install it and throw the deb away, to save disk space ?  
	If I wait too long between upgrades, I run into big problems.

	Otherwise apt is impressive.   When I show someone how it quietly
upgrades 100 packages, it impresses the hell out of them.
