Any way to restart the original installation setup?

I was configuring debian and cancelled one of the questions, only to find out that I cancelled the whole config. I need to run this again ... what should I run? I'm using sarge. Thanks!

Check the man pages but I think it is something like

dpkg --reconfigure -a
This has to be close. Bit rusty for Debian

Possibly you're referring to the base-config script than was run on your very first boot of Debian?

You can run it again by becoming root ("su") and typing "base-config".
