Dear Goh Lip,

I thought it was rescanning the same stuff, it was running so long, and I kept 
seeing .wine over and over.  I made a CD of what was in the Repo Directory, 
almost 500mb, but I did not see the Packages.gz and probably closed the shell 
too soon.  Will it resume if I type in cp /var/cache/apt/archives/*.deb 
/home/steven/Reso again?  It was just continuing what seemed like a scan loop.  
I hope I did not screw up again.

Steven
