How to save your rpm's for future reuse in Mandriva. p3 of 10

Code:

	Why did I decide to reuse the downloaded rpm's (Redhat Package Management)?
To save time, connectivity problems (Internet) Bandwidth and embarrassment after I broke the system. I have added my scripts with explanations to the end of this paper but they are customised for my system, so read and edit them before trying to use them. ;-)
