Thanks for a quick response. Specifying a specific version is always the
first thing I try, and that did not work. But I did get it to install
finally, and here is how.
After running 'apt-cache policy perl libnet-perl', which is a new trick for
me, and I saw those Libranet entries, I commented them out of sources.list
and tried again. Voila, worked like a charm. I really like Libranet, 'cause
it's Real Debian with a great installer, but sometimes their sources are
funky. They pull some from Experimental, and even daily snapshots.
