creating repository …

Initially I felt that it would be better to create an index repository for all the packages available, just like the yum in RedHat. Here’s how to do it…
insert the Debian 1 disc and type
apt-cdrom get
this will create an index for all the packages available in that disc.
Follow this for all the 5 discs..
To check , just like the yum list, here we have
apt-cache search *
to install a package, just like yum install, here we have,
apt-get install
(e.g., ) apt-get install nis ( this will install the nis server)
