This can be avoided, if the sources.list file can be created
reflecting the installation media. This involves checks if the data
entered is valid and apt-cdrom handling.

Then apt-get -f install <selected profiles> would install the
"Priority required" and "standard" packages, as well as the profiles,
and apt will resolve any dependancy.

Should work. I hope :-)

Well, the task and profile packages have to be created anyway, so
let's just have them first, so one can play with them.
