That's strange. I'm not very familiar with the ins and outs of dselect.
Just a thought: I looked up netbase and saw that it's in the base
utilities. Maybe someone else will chime in here if I'm wrong, but I am
thinking that this set of packages is installed after you set up your
partitions and before you reboot to run dselect (Is this correct?
--anyone?). Maybe you can make some install floppies and install the
base system from them, then when you reboot and run dselect install from
for info on doing this.
I used to buy from LSL too, but they seemed too expensive to me (with
shipping and everything). They also dropped their My Debian products (or
I just can't find them) which you could pick and choose from.
