Sorry for my english. 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.
