Unhappy problem with cpp and gcc

I installed the Debian Woody using the 20-floppies installation method.

Now, I am trying to install the x-window-system.

What I did is I download the .deb for x-window-system and install it. It has dependency for a lot of other things which I installed slowly.

One of the dependency is x-window-system-core. However, when I want to install x-window-system-core, it is dependent on base-client, which is inturn depend on cpp.

I tried to install cpp, but keep getting the error

cpp is not installed.


Package cpp-2.95 is not configured yet.

When I checked the Debian website, there seems to have infinite loop of dependency. h t t p : / /

When I search for cpp package, it states that cpp is dependent on cpp-2.95.

When I search for cpp-2.95, it says that it is dependent on cpp.

How should I go about installing this.

My old laptop does not have access to internet, so cannot use apt-get.
