Thank you!  I have a correction though, it seems that the two single-quotes 
need to be replaced with a dot for the current directory (or the directory 
with the packages).

This was the one thing I couldn't figure out how to do.  I didn't even think 
to look for a command other than dpkg, apt-get, or apt-move.

Did you know that if you play a Windows 2000 cd backwards, you 
will hear the voice of Satan?

That's nothing!  If you play it forward, it'll install Windows 2000.
