If you're going to reinstall frequently, you might want to archive your 
deb's somewhere. apt-move on Debian GNU/linux sorts the debs in a
tree like that on CDs or Debian mirrors and creates Packages.gz files.

(I download on machines 20 meters or so from the national debian mirror
with that apt offline method, put the files on zip disks, take them home
and apt-move)
