Depends on what you are looking for. As far as I know, more detailed
options can be optained by running dpkg. The disadvantage is that you have
to download the packages manually.
For example, to install a package in a different directory, e.g. see
/tmp/root as /, type:
dpkg --install --root=/tmp/root blabla.deb
if I am not mistaken.
NT is the OS of the future. The main engine is the 16-bit Subsystem
(also called MS-DOS Subsystem). Above that, there is the windoze 95/98
16-bit Subsystem. Anyone can see that 16+16=32, so windoze NT is a
*real* 32-bit system.
