Creating Ubuntu package repository in LAN


I have created a directory on my server(ubuntu 7.10) where i store all downloaded packages(.deb)
i want to access these packages from other computer from command line.

my server IP is: 192.168.1.100 package directory: /home/comp1/urepo
my client IP is: 192.168.1.104

I want to download packages on my server. If i use command apt-get update from client pc then it should update packages from my server.
so i modified /etc/bash.bashrc file & put following line at the end
http_proxy = http://192.168.1.100:3128

on client side
in my sources.list file
deb http://192.168.1.100:3128/home/comp1/urepo

but when i run apt-get update on my client machine it gives error
Malformed line 5 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (dist)

please help me
