Hi, I have a laptop with Debian (Lenny), and want to install packets, update system etc.. I have no access to the internet on my linux pc, but have a Windows XP pc connected to the web... is there a way to do this updating offline with the help of my connected windows pc ?

Thanks for your answer. Im totally blank on proxy servers, though :-) do you have a specific link on how one is about to do it, or is my best bet "our old pal" Google ?

Okay, thanks for the link  :) Without any knowledge on this subject, I guess that the theory behind using a proxy, is that my internet connection "dont care" if I surf from a linux box via a windows pc ? Ill try to figure out this proxy, and will report back here for sake of this help-forums users  ;) Thanks again for your help.
