Ah, /var/lib/apt/ I didn't know about that one.  Thank you very much!  
It worked perfectly and will save me a great deal of bandwidth with new 
installs and upgrades later on.

I have to use my smart phone to connect to the Internet on our PCs, and 
the cell phone contract I have only provides so many GBs per month, 
without charging me more.  So, every 100MB I can save myself from having 
to download (or re-download in this case) is worth the extra effort.

Thanks again!
