I'm pretty sure that wasn't strictly necessary, but I guess it's done
now.

Well, if you want to get back into tasksel, it seems to me that the
obvious choice is to run tasksel again.
On the other hand, if you want to pick some more packages to install
(having exited tasksel before you had installed everything you wanted)
You can just apt-get those packages and then dpkg --configure them as
needed.
Or, you can use dselect or aptitude to give you a front-end for the
package-by-package installation process.
These will give you a more "fine-grained" control than tasksel will, by
allowing you to choose individual packages instead of sweeping
categories.
Or, if you have packages that are installed but not configured, you
could try debconf.

It really depends on just what it is you want to do.

I'm pretty sure that all the ones mentioned are in /usr/bin, which
should be in your path by default.
You will, naturally, need to be logged in as root to do any of this.
