Re: accessing the dos partition

I used to download the packages to local dos partition and install them from
there. I can recall that dos only allows 8 digits of packages names, which
caused the trouble for dselect to find right packages. You can try that.
But, I would like to buy a distribution cd if I were you. It saves a lot of
efforts downloading the packages.
