|dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/fileutils_4.1-10_i386.deb (--unpack):|
trying to overwrite `/bin/chgrp', which is also in package coreutils
I haven't done a hard disk install but it sounds like you didn't select the GNUutils instead of busybox on install.
I thought recent hard disk installs automagically defaulted to the GNU utils instead of busybox, but I could be wrong. I'm sure John or Robert will be along any moment now to correct my lapsing memory.
Short answer, it sounds like you're either:
a.) Trying to do this from the LiveCD
b.) Had a bad hard disk install
If the answer is "a", my advice would be, don't do it. Install it to the hard drive and if the installer gives you the option to use the GNU utilities instead of BusyBox, do that.
If the answer is "b", reinstall. It's about a 200MB install it'll take you a half-hour, tops.
No good deed goes unpunished...
