Let's say I want to install something big... (kde for example) but I'm doing it in a place with a very poor internet conection, so I want to stop it, and doing it later. But I don't want to start all over again. Can it be done?

Do apt-get install -d STUFF which will download everything
to the cache but won't act on it.

Later when you have a better
connection you can just drop the -d and apt will download the
rest if needed and begin installing from the cache: /var/cache/apt/archives/
