I just took the following images from the potato distribution and copied
them to disk with a command on the ftp/disk install how-to at debian
drivers 1-3
plopped the rescue disk in the drive and followed instructions from
there. It was pretty painless, even for a newbie like me. Dselect was
frightening, so I just went with the 'bonehead' install.  
I just ran dselect update and came up with about 150 megabytes of stuff
I needed(?), that's why I wanted to make the boot floppy. Not sure if I
might have fscked something up or not...
