Being able to use the Add/Remove application for this would be
advantageous.

It provides a nice and easy gui to be able to read descriptions of
applications. For people like my farther, I could tell him to look in
there if he's trying to install some thing, and then have the ISO's on
my file server. It would make things much simpler for the two of us.

It seems a tad strange that there isn't an easier way of pointing it to
a local repo.
