package selection problems (Re: boot floppies 2.2.7 available for testing)

Ok, this time it's an old system that I have sitting in the corner.

After reboot, it asks to configure apt.  Now, I have no cd, not currently
dialed in, and no local mirror.  Manually configuring the sources.list
works easy enough, complains about not being able to verify things
(expected).  I had to cancel the apt config to pass to the next part.
Canceling the simple/advanced package selection returned me to the same
(or maybe the apt) dialog.  I knew simple would have problems since I
didn't have a network connection.  Trying advanced caused a reboot.
Definately not a good result.  On the plus side, following a reboot, the
awery keyboard problem is gone.
