As I pointed out earlier I could install full
gnome-desktop-environment using apt-get or aptitude with this single
CD. Hence it should be possible. Let me repeat once again - with this
single CD - aptitude shows gnome-desktop-enviornment as a task and
does install perfectly without additional mirror or cd.
The system on which I installed is working fine without additional cd
or mirror - serving my purpose.
Only problem is tasksel doesn't show it either while installing or
later running tasksel manually.
I encountered same proble earlier with a DVD dowinloaded using jigdo.
I thought it may be a temporary problem and didn't raise bug.
