the easiest way:

apt-get install grep-dctrl

and then do something like:

grep-aptavail -F Essential yes -o -F Priority required -s Package


grep-aptavail -F Essential yes -o -F Priority required -o \
   -F Priority standard -s Package

depending on what it is exactly that you want (the fine manpage has more
info).  if you want all the packages part of a basic debian
installation, the second one is probably closer.

alternatively, you could run the installer, not select any software, and
then run "dpkg -l" from the cmdline :)
