There are a few places where debian-cd references the mirror, suite, etc. which is a bit awkward here. Thinking about this, the *easiest* way to do this would be to use the existing "local" support which can pull in a local repo of changed .debs and .udebs on top of the base Debian repo access. Simply setting up a local repo with the apt packages in wouldn't be too hard here, and would solve the initial installation problem. However, it might confuse people a little, and I'll admit it might look ugly too. I'll give it a try now... -- Steve McIntyre, Cambridge, UK. st...@einval.com Is there anybody out there?
