sysv-rc - overwrite /etc/init.d/rc


I installed Knoppix on HD. When I try to update using dselect, I always get an error while unpacking new sysv-rc (sysv-rc_2.85-4.1-all.deb).
dpkg says:
(translated freely from german)
dpkg: Error proceeding /var/cache/apt/archives/sysv-rc_2.85-4.1_all.deb (--unpack): trying to overwrite "/etc/init.d/rc" which is also in packet sysvinit. Errors occured while proceeding /var/cache/apt/archives/sysv-rc_2.85-4.1_all.deb (--unpack)

I can install all other packages by trying to install many times until only sysv-rc remains but of course this is not a state I would want to keep forever...

Any ideas how to solve the problem?
