In my experimenting with lenny netinstall, I have never been able to get
a fully functional system without running tasksel. I have never found
documentation that actually tells the whole truth about what files it
uses, etc. So it is difficult (impossible?) to debug this sort of thing.
My advice, one user to another, is to run tasksel during netinstall and
be done with it. Not running tasksel does not simplify whatever your real
problem is, IMHO.
