why would you install it more than once?

hard to believe.  i hope this isn't an insulting question, but what
makes you think it's not on your system?

sounds like you should read www.dirac.org/linux/debian.

satan# dpkg -S dselect
dpkg: /usr/bin/dselect
dpkg: /usr/share/man/sv/man8/dselect.8.gz
perl: /usr/bin/podselect
perl: /usr/share/man/man1/podselect.1.gz
dpkg: /usr/share/man/man8/dselect.8.gz
base-config: /usr/lib/base-config/60dselect
dpkg: /usr/share/man/ja/man8/dselect.8.gz
dpkg: /etc/dpkg/dselect.cfg

dselect is provided by dpkg.  if THAT'S not on your system, well, you
must have burned suse on your debian disks by accident.

i'd recommend against using dselect anyhow.  dpkt/apt are a good combo.
