hrmm, I must have been halucniating, 'cause I am not getting
that error now....[chalk it up to operator error on my part]

Did I say that? <snicker>, I must have mis-spoke myself ;-)

Actually, because the boot floppies are from slink (and libc2.0 ?)
That means that all the programs in the base files it installs
need to be upgraded BEFORE things like dselect will work correctly.
This problem will go away when a new boot-floppy is released that
has been compiled with the current libraries.  When upgrading from 
slink, apt is the easiest way.
