I have two questions:
    1. What should replace "????" as I'll be using DVD1 of Debian 9.1.0
       as my "repository"?
    2. As I expect the console display may exceed the scroll back limits,
       I wish to pipe the console display for later reference without
       impeding answering any prompts I get. I've seen a description for
       doing that, but I can't remember it. Pointers?

No idea about (1), but for (2) you can use this:

~# command 2>&1 | tee command.log

With "tee" you create/squash the output file anew. With "tee -a" you append to

Or run the commands inside a screen(1) session.  That's what the release
notes advise for distribution upgrades.

I've just browsed the first few paragraphs of the man page.
It looks fascinating. Will have to experiment.
Thank you.
