Welcome to VL pastorblue.
@kc1di: I think he wants to download vectorlinux packages once, and transfer them to other vl computers, without having to download again from internet.
Unfortunately, I don't know how to do it
. I'd try to cp -r /home/ftp to another computer, and try to slapt-get a given package, maybe, slapt-get will reuse the packages in /home/ftp.
If a package has no dependencies, you can just installpkg /path/to/name_of_package.tlz , and it will install. If it has dependencies, you should install them manually too (a bit tedious).
We'll have to wait for more experienced vl users to come with a safe solution...
