U ha!
Now if you dunno what it is your looking for i.e. deps and you ls the
rpm dirs on the cds you get a list that scares the pants of the devil
himself. And the amount of time you spend searching  through the list is
painfull. But my wish was to have maybe synaptic for the discs where you
could click on the item and see what it is and requires.
