Dselect is not appropriate for seul.  Its replacement, "diety", may be, but
is not ready yet.

I have not installed 1.3 yet, but it was my understanding that it could be
installed with one floppy (or none, with a bootable CD drive).

The Debian install is still much too difficult.  I don't think that any
distribution has an install suitable for seul.  However, the install and
administration stuff is not the core of a distribution: the packaging
system is.  You could fairly easily build a distribution which used the
Debian package system with the Red Hat "control panel" (not that I am
suggesting it).
