This might be what I am looking for as I currently am using the same 
distro (sid) on all machines.  I am using X86 and ultra sparc hardware 
though.  I will be setting up about 3 more systems with woody though. 
 Would it be worth it for me to setup my own mirror?  If so would it be 
best for me to copy all of the cd's I have know and then sync it up?  Or 
possibly take my laptop over to someones place to copy the mirror over 
to save bandwidth?
