Bug#132350: basedebs.tgz not gzipped

Package: boot-floppies
Version: 3.0.17

I hope I'm submitting this for the right package. I tried installing Woody from floppies on Feb 2, 2002. The installer didn't like the base disks (it couldn't recognize the first disk as a base disk). I used dd to move all the disks over and catted them into a basedebs.tgz (first checking that this produced the exact same result as basedebs.tgz).

Using the basedebs.tgz resulted in the installer complaining that gunzip failed. I gzipped the file and everything worked.
