Sorry about the title, but there also was a website that generated the text for you. You only had to choose what distro you had. I know it sounds kind of vague, but it's the best way i can describe it. Hope you guys can help me

I'll try to describe it differently. If you want to add packages to linux you can install them from your installation cd's. But instead of installing them from your cd's you can tell linux to get them from the internet. More clearly this way ?

Maybe he's talking about apt or portage?

Bendert, do you know which distro you're asking about?
