Is there *any* way to check what packages are available on particular CD without downloading iso and mounting it locally? If not (and I'm assuming that's the right answer)
[...] wrong. try: $ wget -nd \ http://cdimage.debian.org/pub/cdimage-testing/cd/jigdo-area/i386/sarge-i386-1.jigdo $ zless sarge-i386-1.jigdo usually jigdo files are a few kb long. cheers. g.b.
