It occurs to me the reason you are confused is that when I 'Standard
System' you are thinking I mean 'typical system' when in fact I mean
that I select the option 'Standard System' on the tasksel menu. 

Tasksel's standard system mean a base install + packages with priority:
standard, which gives you a 'useful character mode operating system'
(according to policy).

There is a bug on taskel because of the terminology being
confusing, and if I am right that this what confused you perhaps you'll
want to add your comments.  I've obviously been using the installer too
often lately.



And that's my crabbing done for the day.  Got it out of the way early, 
now I have the rest of the afternoon to sniff fragrant tea-roses or 
strangle cute bunnies or something.   -- Michael Devore
