OK, thanks. I'm downloading the first 4 isos with jigdo at the moment. I'm
also reading the installation notes (rather large).

I looked in "Utilities" where it says backup programs live. I found Amanda
and afbackup there. Then I though I looked in both the compressed and
uncompressed lists for 3.1 Sarge and did not find it.
Well, after Marius provided the link, I found it was in "Administration
Utilities" AND it is also in both the full compressed and uncompressed lists.
I was just dumb and missed it.

OK thanks. I'm not worrying any more.

OK, this is no problem. It is normal that there are a few minor delays. I
prefer that it installs correctly rather than worrying about deadlines.

Thanks again for all your work on packaging Bacula. Hopefully, I'll learn how
you build your debs ... :-)
