Updating the Badger (v5.10) by dialup...

Evening folks:

I have the base and security repositories hooked into my setup (not the 
applications one just yet) and I've gotten the little pop up that updates are 
waiting. So, off I go to the update manager and I find it's giving me an 
estimate of 179 packages to update weighing in at an estimated 169m (I'm 
assuming that's non-ISO shorthand for megabytes). Now, on dial up that is a 
non-starter to do in one sitting when I'm using the household phone line. Can 
that list be downloaded in smaller (considerably smaller) blocks or is that 
likely to cause problems with the operation of the system.
