I did have a RedHat installed. I made room to free a partition to
put the base package and a kernel. I did make the config files as needed
(that would have been made by the installer) and set the network up.
Then I rebooted on it, plugged to the networks, and I used deselect and
downloaded apt (a needed package to do fast network installation).
Then I downloaded everything else with dselect using apt.

I must say that I also had to download some package manually because
they were not in the main archive... (like X11, glibc2.1, etc).
