I want to cross intall debian packages using apt or dselect under Linux (if
possible) since  I am SOL about having internet access under the HURD
(Although if I port PPP I can use my external U.S. robotics modem). I know
that GNUMach does not support pcmcia that was my point.

I installed from the tar ball. There are still other packages that I would
like to get and install.

Should the cross-install script work this way? hmmm...maybe I'll just give
it a look. I probably will just have to install the debs by hand, oh

As you can tell I'm clueless about apt and dselect (although I have been
using Debian for a while now, and I love it). Well not totally clueless, I
do know how to use them.

Does the pcmcia stuff still exist? This might be another thing that
I can work on.

Ah hell, forget what I said about cross installing using dpkg, apt that would
never work, would it?
