agt-get local mirror (was Re: DVDs on SuSE 8.1)

I've been wanting to check out apt-get now there was no excuse ;->

But I brings two questions:

1) When I try to do the apt-get -s upgrade it complains that I have
mozilla-1.1 (from SuSE) instead of mozilla-1.0

> apt-get -s upgrade
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these.
Sorry, but the following packages have unmet dependencies:
nautilus: Depends: mozilla (= 1.0) but 1.1-0 is installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.

Do I downgrade mozilla run apt-get -s upgrade and upgrade mozilla again??

2) At the office we are two running Linux. There is no reason we both use
bandwith downloading the same stuff.. A proxy setting would solve this...

But additionally I'm running Linux at home and only have a K56 modem - I
prefer bringing the updates home by CDRW than downloading them again....

Can we setup use a common local directory as mirror like on apt-get install
look in local directory, if rpm is there and up to date - install else
download and copy to local directory????

these rpms are being offered via the apt repository as well (link2linux is
mirrored). With apt (advanced package tool) there is no need to monitor the
repository manual as apt does that for you e.g.

an "apt-get install <pkg from l2l>" is sufficient to obtain the packages and
have them installed for you.

More about apt at: (and look for packman-i38x)
for the l2l rpms.
