I want to install some Debian distributions (Grip, Crush, Lenny...) for arm / armel architectures.

I'm referring to this guide:

The problem I have is that I don't have internet connection with My Linux VM or Qemu I am behind a Proxy. I want to know is there a way where I can dl all the needed files and save them to disk that I don´t need an I.c. during the installation? I am working under Windows now.

Well i am working on arm boards + c# development and i am totally new on embedded systems. – Gobliins Oct 5 '10 at 7:13

Possibly a local repository mirror?

Also there appears to be a syntax for describing local apt sources ala file:/my/local/apt/repo stable main contrib non-free but I can't find apt-get docs, also this is not just dumping a buch of debs, its setting up a repo that happens to be on the local filesystem(or on cd/dvd).
