If you're using dselest's ftp method (dpkg-ftp), you'll need this
small patch, which I included in bug report 8762 for dpkg-ftp:

--- /usr/lib/dpkg/methods/ftp/install.orig Thu Dec  5 07:37:13 1996
+++ /usr/lib/dpkg/methods/ftp/install Wed Apr 16 01:47:34 1997

 print "\nProcessing Package files...\n";
 my $dist;
 foreach $dist (@dists) {
+    $dist =~ tr/\//_/;
     my $fn = "Packages.$dist";
     if (-f $fn) {
        print " $dist...\n";

It fixes small, but nasty bug in install script which doesn't convert
slashes to underscores in packages file names. Now you can enter:
	unstable hamm/non-free hamm/contrib
for distribution list.
