There is either a debian/hamm directory, or there is a debian/main (in
which case dselect need only be told "debian" as the path}

There are no contrib packages in main (which is the only part of the
distribution that will fit on one cd) when dselect asks about all the
other archives (contrib, non-free etc...) you must enter "none", as there
aren't any on the cd.
