DNS lookup failure was (Re: DEBIAN 1.2 DISKETTE PROBLEMS UPDATE)

In response to the DNS lookup failure I was advised that removing the
commas was sufficient to get things working, and have been reporting that
fact to folks on debian-user. Although it is true that dpkg-ftp will now
work, if the first nameserver on the list works, it will not make any use
of the remaining addresses in the list. The proper method is to have one
address per nameserver line. So:

nameserver a b c

should actually be:

nameserver a
nameserver b
nameserver c

Which will exhibit the correct behavior.
This will be fixed on the next set of base disks.
