OK, I see your immediate problem - ncpfs depends on ipx, which is not on
the first disc. Checking on this, it's missing from slink1.useful. Add it
there and all should work. The new pkg-order stuff will fail if
dependencies on disc 1 are not met and will give a warning if the others

Hmmm. The md5sum errors here suggest you will be prone to the same errors
as Gunnar Isaksson - if the Packages files on your mirror are out of sync
then packages may not be copied over. It looks like the master Packages
files are broken. <sigh>
