RE: Problem installing Sarge from ISO images
Here are my exact steps....
I boot from iso disk 1 to start the install process.
The base system installs ok and reboots
After reboot I get the configuration menu screen.
I set time, configure apt and such...
Then I choose "select packages to install" and that is when the install
hangs. It just sits there doing nothing. No other screens appear.
I manualy reboot the machine and this time I go directly to the shell as
root and try to manully do things like...
Run apt-setup which works
I then type tasksel so I can select some packages to install. This works
and I select a couple of packages. However when I select finish it asks for
disk 1. I put disk 1 in and hit enter. It does not read the disk and asks
me again to insert disk 1.
Thanks for your help,

What do you mean? He scans the CD's, you put in all 5 of them, one at a
time. Then he asks you whether you want to run tasksel, or whatever,
what do you say?
Does he install packages?
Do you ever get: "Thank you for choosing Debian"?

You mean he says "Insert CD#1", you do so, he reads it, and says "Insert
CD#1" again, or he keeps saying it without reading the CD?
