I was told that dselect has problems with hamm being distributed on
more than one cd rom.  Ian Jackson suggested that we should take a
look at dpkg-mountable.  This means that a) dpkg-mountable might need
to be included in the boot floppies and b) we'll need at least one another
set of boot floppies - or someone invents a different method for this.

This is based on the idea that only packages up to a certain priority
are included on the first cdrom and lower priorities are distributed
through the second one.

dark: Could you run your script that checks each priority for
completeness?  (don't depend/... on packages of lower priority)
