Where does dselect store it's selections?

I had high hopes of getting my wife's new woody machine deployed this
weekend, but I seem to have sliped inot a descending death spiral on that
machine :-(

Presently both printing and email are horibly broken on it.

So I fired up dselect, amde the mistake of telling it to update, and tried
to seect cups, instead of lprng.

Unfortuantely, I go inot a depedncy loop, that I could not figure out how
to resolve, as I tried to exit the selection step., so In desperation, I
control C's out of it.

Seems to me, that I probably should go back to the set of working
selections I had before firing it up, and I reacll that it keeps a backup
file f the selections before it was fired up, but i can't remeber where
this lives.

Help please! Where is this abckup file, and does my plan make sense?
