I'm buying a laptop and was wondering, is there a faq or howto anyplace on
copying the whole distribution to a partition on a HD? It would be great
to be away from home, and if a package is recommended to me to just be able
to log into root and run apt-get while on the road.
You might want to check out apt-move. Theres a nice discussion about
doing the exact same thing here:
basically you can make a repository from the cds to your local hd,
providing you have enough space for it.
