Last week I installed a complete system including X11 from the 1.3.1r6
bootfloppies and the files in the hamm/ distributions - and it worked.
The only strange thing is that some applications Pre-Depend on libraries
that Depend, but _not_ Pre-Depend on other libraries/apps themselves-
so installation fails at the first step in dselect.
The libc5/libc6 conflict was really strange ..
Workaround is to install those packages by hand in another console and
restart dselect until things start working..
