Now it would be nice if apt-get keeps all downloaded packages or at
least latest version, then you could just burn these onto a dvd and
reinstall then install all updates from dvd.  Is this the way it works
or is this cache wiped out every time you update?

For instance, I want to create an updated dvd with all latest 8.04
updates.  How do I do this?
