I gave this some thought, but as I am documenting dselect rather that the
install process I have not gone into cdroms and the nfs problem will go
away with 1.2.  Maybe ftp should get a mention, but there again it is a
different layer from dselect.  I have not used it.

At this point the document is 300 lines which is about as far as I can
stretch Bruce's request for a SHORT file.  Look on
ftp://oak.scotch.wa.edu.au/pub for dselect.beginner.3.gz.  Please report


As an aside here, why do messages from me to the list come up in my Pine
index (in the From column) as To:debian-user rather than as from Lindsay?
