Subject: Installing Debian 2.0 fails with massive libc5-libc6 conflicts.

	I may be missing something, but a *very simple* initial
installation of Debian 2.0 seems to always break after the 'base'
system installs correctly and installation script invokes dselect
to install any one of many 'pre-selected' package sets. I am not
able to install ANY of these 'pre-selected' packages without
running into massive conflicts between libc5_5.4.33-6.deb and the
previously (automatically) installed libc6 (vers 2.0.7t-1). I assume
that the 'base2_0' package contained libc6. I have tried the Admin,
Standard, etc., etc. preselected sets, all to no effect.

	I have looked at the bug reports, mail archives, etc, and see nothing
about this. It seems like I must be missing something awfully simple
and/or obvious, but I can't see what :-(

	Can you help, or point me toa source that can?
