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.
