My first Debian install.
I got to the point where I get to choose a
"profile" (or choose "tasks" to build a custom profile), and
I'm having trouble now. I chose the "Admin" profile which is
supposed to require around 337M. I'm prompted to skip the [S]elect step of
dselect since these have been pre-selected by the profile. I chose the
apt/ftp install method (I've got a good ISDN Internet connection and plenty of
time to download.)
When I chose the [I]nstall step, I get the
4 packages upgraded,
436 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 149M of
archives. After unpacking 337M will be used.
Do you want to continue

have enough free space in /var/cache/apt/archives/
Some errors occured while unpacking.

Is /var/cache/apt/archives located on my smaller root
partition? (Another newbie question: How do I find this sort of thing
out? I know how to use th 'df' command to see how much space I have
left. I don't know how to discern what partition a specific directory is
What is the best solution here? Start over and create a
larger root partition? Specify alternate archive location on /usr?
Manually select a few packages at a time?
Also, is there a way to go back in the installation and
re-select a "profile" or "tasks" in order to auto-select
groups of packages?
