No, my question was different. Downloading, moving and installing is not
a problem (i'm following /usr/share/doc/apt/offline.txt.gz).
But now i'd like to have dselect, console-apt or aptitiude installed on
RH system. I tried to install capt, but it failed (see my first mail)
I don't know whether i need dpkg installed first or not (iirc there is
dpkg for non-debian systems).
