When I did my Woody install, I used the Potato disks, and installed the base
system from Potato.  For the second stage of the install (after the reboot to
boot off the HD), when it asked about the sources.list (whether I wanted to
edit it, etc), I changed it to point to unstable, and the rest of the install
worked with the Woody sources, including the task selector, etc.

I was installing off an ftp site, so YMMV with CDs.
