[parisc-linux] dselect problems

I have a 712/80 and a graphics monitor (HP A1097C).  I got the base
system running from the palinux-0.9-32sti.iso CD.

I then tried to run "dpkg-reconfigure base-config".  It got to where it
is supposed to install the packages and died with a message:  failed
running script /usr/sbin/dpkg-preconfigure --apt || true
apt-utils is not installed.

I got apt-utils to install with "apt-get install apt-utils", but now I
can't get anything else to install either with dselect or apt-get.  I
get errors about "couldn't stat source package list cdrom...
- stat (2 no such file or directory).

"which stat" shows nothing.  I don't see a stat package either.
This is my first experience with Debian.

Any clues?, Thanks.
