    need help on packages from internet to burn it to cd


    hi

    i need to know how to get packages (using windows xp) for debian from an internet site so that i can put these packages on a CD, i work in company that make servers for caching the internet, and when we make these servers using Debian we add an internet site address in the APT configration menu (somthing called resourcelist), and after logging the Debian OS we use the command (apt-get) to download these packages and this process is very slow . So we want to know if there is a way to keep these files in a CD so we can install these packages faster .

    note: When i try to get into the site that contains the packages, the site show nothing but white blank page.

    any one can help??
    thanks in advance

    You can burn the packages you need on cd. And when you want to install something from CD-ROM type in console the following command:
    Code:
    apt-cdrom add /cdrom
    .
    For debian packages go here.
