In the same case as you, what I've made was, apt-get update ; apt-get dist-upgrade in the machine with the dial-up connection, after this, with dpkg-scanpackages made a Packages file of the /var/cache/\ apt/archives and then add a line in the /etc/apt/sources.list of the rest of the machines that points to the first. After this, apt-get update, apt-get dist-upgrade. Then, apt-get clean in the dial-up machine. That's all. -- Benjamín Albiñana Pérez Linux User Nº78177 No señora, no soy un completo inútil.
