    Need to install away server w/ Open Stack from broadband - but how?

    Here is what I believe to be an unusual question.

    I've always installed Ubuntu desktop (many versions and flavors) with a decent internet connection, but now I find myself preparing for my first-ever server (13.04) installation, in a place without broadband. I therefore wish to prepare for installing everything from media, which I would download before I wander off to the Boonies.

    How can I download all the files I would need for a complete Open Stack install, onto movable media, before I leave the blue blanket of my broadband connection?

    Once downloaded and a basic install performed, would I install additional packages needed by apt after revising /etc/apt/sources.lst to point to where the Big Pile o' Files be, or would I manually install each with dpkg, or, on the Gripping Hand, do it in a way I do not yet recognize?

    Thank you kindly.

    Best thing is to set up a local mirror and bring it. There are several paths to take, but they all lead the same place. Eventually, you will have a USB hard drive with all the repos.
