I'm not sure what you mean here - I never had any problem installing from a
dos partition (but then again I used dselect).

I just put all the .deb files in a directory, told dselect I didn't have a
Packages file and to scan them to find out what I did have.

Have you tried the -mentors list?

If memory serves it's debian-mentors-request@lists.debian.org and it's
supposed to be for getting one-on-one help with debian.

If that doesn't help, keep on asking... sometimes people are just busy.
