To read 5 - 10 Minutes the Intro displayed by dselect and a look at the
Keystrokes page is too much? You have a new thing and dont want to
learn how to use it?

Ok. Should i stop and let you do the work?

This is a Intro CD to Debian. Nothing more.
I dont care about tasksel or aptitude, but i try to build a usable CD.
Even if you like tasksel: It is *IMO* useless if you dont have all
packages for the tasks installed.
If list-members dont want it removed, just a note in the README thats
fine for me.

BTW: dselect is one of the best things in Debian, together with dpkg,
apt and the whole package system.

dselect is easy. DOT.
BTW: There is this aptitude thing on the CD if you dont like dselect.
