It's because of people like you that I ADORE linux. There is always great support right around the corner.
As for my question, I was able indeed to log in the repository with a ftp (I didn't know you could do that) and download my .deb (When I go back with debian in a month, could I just add this repository to my computer and download my package on my computer for archiving purposes?)
klearview, the iphone directory scheme seems to be a bit diferent. under /var/cache/apt/archives I have only a folder named "partial" and a file named "lock" . So I don't know where they put it, but looks like it's elsewhere!
