D'oh, that means more than 1 DVD (and we just bought a DVD recorder at 
work)!  I have been wanting to setup my own local debian mirror or 
apt-proxy.  The main purpose is to update the seven or so machines I 
will have on my home network.  What is the needed disk space per port 
and version? I.e. Woody on x86.  I have x86 and ultra sparc and may use 
both woody and sid on them so I guess I would need to time this by 4 for 
enough disk space.

Also, I could setup my Toshiba Libretto 50CT (with 6GB hard drive) for 
using at installfests of demo's.  It could be setup with at least the 
core of woody for that.
