Default repositories on dvd

new to linux [xubuntu 7.10]
new to how to forge forum
great site from what I have seen so far.

I was particularly interested in the how to about putting repositories on DVD, as I have my Xubuntu loaded on a machine that rarely sees the internet.
I have a couple of questions.

1] I am wondering if there is a way to download these repositories thru a WinXP machine [Currently, it is the one connected to the internet most of the time.]

Can anyone tell me how to completely uninstall [or maybe there is a how to available] wine and the programs I am using wine for. I have screwed it up and would like to start fresh, but am a little unsure what files [programs I am using wine for] I can safely delete.

thank you

(1) use AptonCD http://aptoncd.sourceforge.net/ to make repositories on the CD and for downloading the stuff.... hmmm... no clue... if you have enough diskspace on your disk you can make a mirror and by syncing you'll download it all (for ubuntu check here: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/mirror/1 )

(2) removing wine

(2a) removing wine first:
apt-get purge wine
(2b) removing the wine folder in your home
cd /home/user
rm -Rf .wine
(2c) manually delete entries made to the menu

that's how I would do it...

sjau thanks for response

I will try the wine deletion [#2]

as for an answer to my 1st question:
AptonCD looks good, but, as I stated I want to download these repositories thru a WinXP machine, as it is the one mostly connected to the internet.

It will be great once I get both machines on linux, but until then I need to get my downloads thru a windows machine.
