Hi Ali,

hmm, that doesn't sound like one of the many problems I had along the
way.  Also I'm not quite sure what you mean:

-- which "login" prompt?  do you mean the cd boot prompt?  or the
real login prompt, which is only available after stage I install is
complete, & you reboot into your new system?  usually if your system
gets that far, there is some way to continue (though if you're making
your own install cd's, maybe you want a foolproof method)

-- not sure what you mean, "trouble rebuilding the directories".  which
packages were you replacing?  did you try using apt-ftparchive or
something similar to make the Packages file? for me that was a key
