I want to know if there is a way to setup my apt program to download all

Thanks for your Help
Make your /etc/apt/preferences file like the enclosed preferences file.
I do not know which release of debian you are using. I am using
'testing', so you may have to alter the preferences file. Add an entry
to your /etc/apt/sources.list file to point to the 'unstable' version.
Use dselect (or apt-get) to 'update' your system.
Use 'apt-get install -t unstable wine' to install wine.
Any other pckages that wine needs will also be installed from 'unstable'.
You can use 'apt-get -s install -t unstable wine' to simulate the
install. This way you can see what 'apt-get' would have installed. Be
sure to read 'man apt-get'.
