Why not use one of the many debian srvers around the world?

What I do is apt-get update (if needed)
apt-get install <package> -f -d
then when you have all the archives just do
apt-get install <package>
works ok here.
-f = fix missing files/archives etc
-d = download only to save any nasty problems with dependancies.
