I believe that only works in X. Are you in X (the gui)?

Boot with cd1 like you are going to install, but select upgrade and expert. Select one of the de/wm, or select the x server. That should pull in the other stuff you need automatically.

You probably want to install developmental packages as well.

Another possibility is to install apt4rpm and use that to install.
