I am told packet radio is very painfully slow. There is a new protocol in  
the works, but that's about as much as I know. Most of the efforts seem  
aimed at long distance wifi.

We've discussed mature distros before. What you describe is one reason I  
am a proponent of things like CentOS and other RHEL clones. That long  
shelf life might mean older apps, but everything I need is on one DVD for  
each architecture. I have heard of people burning a current catalog of  
additional repos (such as RPMForge) on additional disks before doing  
remote service.
