Dear Kalpesh, Dear Team,

I would like to have the Ubuntu Repository on my USB Disk, to use in
supporting schools in Binga. Schools here use Ubuntu BUT do not have
internet. I use dialup and sometimes find it very difficult to download
updates and software etc.

Is it possible for you to assist me by creating a repository on a mobile
disk? I would like to purchase  an appropriate size and get it delivered
to you in Harare and later collected for me. What size of disk should I
purchase? How long can it take you to create the repo?
