This is bug #218774 (main-menu). I'm tempted to "fix" this bug by putting load-cdrom and load-floppy on the CDROM, dropping load-installer entirly, and removing (or ignoring?) the apparently broken code in main-menu that handles chooing amoung virtual packages that satisfy a dependency. Matt, do you have any thoughts? As far as I can see, you touched this part of main-menu last. -- see shy jo  Actually it would be a special late-load-floppy, with a menu-item-number that puts it after load-cdrom.
