Bug#127546: boot-floppies: please, please, please include a pointer to basedebs/disks somewhere

Package: boot-floppies
Version: 3.0.18-2001-12-21
Severity: normal

AFAIK there is nowhere a mention where one can find the basedebs.tgz or
the base-disks. Please, please, please spare the volounteers that go and
try to install testing what in heaven could have gone wrong, where possibly
one could find the base-stuff and then installing some possibly stale old
basedebs.tgz that s/he found on some obscure internet site and that possibly
will break together with the newer install disks.

Mind you there is *nowhere* AFAIS a mention of any base-stuff at all allthough
it is required depending on how you install the system.


PS: I'm taging this as a "normal" bug since this effectively breaks the install
    i.e. the user is left at a point at a place where he has no internet access
    with a half installed system where he's spend a few hours allready to
    install it.
