Maybe you just don't have enough hdspace on a machine and can't let
apt-get from a http (or ftp) source fill /var/cache/apt with the
packages you want to install (nfs mounted mirror is a 'file:/' URI and
doesn't do this).


Get a life. Get Windows(tm). It makes you wanna spend a lot less time
with your pc.
