I use GNORPM. But (as it's currently configured) it doesn't work for me
unless I'm root.

Subject: Package Management

Hi all,

I wonder, is there an utility that allows to install/update/remove
packages? The update/remove part is of paramount importance.

Also, hearing from the happy users of Debian (i386), apparently 
they can save on a single floppy all the data that are strictly
needed in order to install a Debian system from scratch (what
packages and, for each package, the chosen version). This is 
a terrific feature that allows sysadms to mirror their finely
tuned system across multiple machines, with ftp installation.
Do we have something similar?
