I got many unet dependencies, probably due to the quantity of extra
stuff I was dumping onto disk 1. My original intention was to provide
a single disk (with single_disk) install with some special packages.

Thanks for pointing this out. I can now use the old CD I made for a
base install and the next disk(s) for a potato build. I do need
potato (2.3.x kernel and glibc2.1 dependencies).
