I tried the first approach, running dselect and chosing multicd, after
first installing dpkg-multicd. It was not at all clear what to do after that.
implies that using multicd access is a bit tricky; that is correct.
I never got it to work. So I changed the access method to apt---
previously I had assumed that that was only for downloads from
a web site---and things proceeded much smoother. dselect would now
query for the proper CD when it needed to install a selected package.
