	Ahh that's it. Thanks.

	I am still stumped with something relatively simple (or I think it

	I want to be able to add a series of packages to my Debian CD and
have them show up in the Advanced option (using dselect).

	Right now, I have: dists/stable/local/binary-386/admin/

	In this directory are all my "local" packages.

	I want to create a Packages file for this directory. I've tried
dpkg-scanpackages at various places, with various options and either
make mirrorcheck fails or debian-cd doesn't quite build the CD the way
that I want it..

	Where and with what options should I pass to dpkg-scanpackages in
order so that my CD be built correctly?
