hi listers,

i am trying to installing a functional but minimalistic debian system. 
Right now i am doing the following to install packages -

$apt-cache search package
$apt-get install package

Obviously it is the worst thing to do in this case. i tried using
dselect but it is bent on installing some 17 packages on my system. It
seems that this is becuase i am using dselect on the system for the
first time and those are the recommended packages. Pressing 'R' or 'D'
should tell dselect to mind it's own business says the help but that
isn't helping. dselect still wants to act like a controlling wife (and
i don't want to act the henpecked husband).
