well, i has a solution for you.

why do you not mount the /var/cache/apt in only one machine.


in has a realy folder in /var/cache/apt
but 192.168.0.[1-254] mount they folder /var/cache/apt via NFS in

so are you only need to run apt-get in, and another machines dont need donwload the same file, becouse he has in cache.

tell me if its works...
and i sorry for my english, I from brazil.
