RE: HD recovery & debian installation mirroring (& others)
I'm sorry for this type of mail, but I can only use webmail...
I don't think I will be able to get that file now... unless doing some hard recovery of the disk. I was able, in the begining, to read the full disk and I did a "dpkg --get-selections" and saved the result, but I think this won't be enough, right?
I have a operable Debian system, I'm using it to try to recover the disk. But without that file.... maybe I could grep it? Does recover work on a disk without partitions? :/

Look for packages with a "Status:" field of "install ok installed". The
"Package:" field is the name of the package.
Do you have an operable Debian system that you can look at to get the
format of records in this file so that you can write up a quick script
to do it for you?
Can you still mount the partition?
