FWIW, either on your debian CD or on your local debian mirror, in the "bo"
directory there should be a file called "Contents" - whenever you want to
find out what debian package contains file xxx, just use grep:
bash-2.01$ grep stdio.h /cdrom/bo/Contents
>From this list, you could then see that the file you want is
/usr/include/stdio.h, and thereby find out which package you need.
