How to download entire multimedia repository from debian-multimedia

Friends, I want to download all the packages for i386-stable architecture from debian-multimedia. The reason is, only one of my computers have Internet connection. I have yet to see such an option in that website. Any ideas...thanks in advance

Nothing's impossible, but I'm limited in time right now. I sure would like to practice bash scripting.
I'm sure one could make a script that goes to the mirror of your choice, download the Contents-i386 list, then go through all directories recursively downloading all packages listed.

Here...let us know how it turns out.

I remember I used to run apt-mirror for a similar purpose. You might check that program out to see if it does what you need.
