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

Have you tried the -mentors list?
If memory serves it's firstname.lastname@example.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.
