Saturday 5 Feb 2005, after running apt-get upgrade on another sarge PC
I also tried tasksel and even when I ask tasksel to 
install/remove/install/remove the "Fileserver" packages (that is samba, nfs, 
apple), aptitude never asked for any confirmation before installing or 
removing packages, which I find strange ...

So, I also was unable to reproduce that problem on another computer.

I will try to provide that on Wednesday 7 Feb (from the Dutch-language

I plan to continue to use the exact original CD image (iso 1) that I 
downloaded on 22 Jan 2004 from the official site, or rather should
I download a new CD image ?

Maybe this afternoon, I will be able to give more info from another
install I plan to execute from this CD.

Thanks for your time,
