Re: hamm (fresh) install considerations

   I'm considering a fresh hamm install, however I haven't found much 
   information about installing hamm fresh.  I presume that bash and libc 
   would be non-issues (at least for installation), but beyond that, what 
   can I expect, in terms of errors -- both quantity and complexity?

There aren't any hamm install disks yet AFAIK.  You have to install
bo, then upgrade to hamm.

   Also, I've always installed debian with cdrom and this time I want to 
   start with a hard drive install, but I only want to download selected 
   packages, then follow up with ftp.  Will dselect panic if many packages 
   in the list of available packages aren't on my hard drive?  If so, 
   what's a good way to generate a list of available packages, or is this 
   a bad thing?

I think this will work.  But remember that upgrading to hamm replaces
every package, not just a few, due to the fundamental glibc changes.
This means that you end up downloading hundreds of megabytes for large
