To Heiko: Well, everything is possible once there is someone to code it. However, I fail to see the real use cases for this, apart from having a guarantee that things are properly setup from the beginning and users don't have to mess around to find out what magic has to be done in order to configure the second network card. Though I admit this could probably help those who are not clever enough to figure out the very clever, but sometimes hard to decipher, mechanisms we use to configure thigns in Debian.....I think it doesn't really belong to the installer. Indeed, when one installs a machine, the second network interface (whatever it is) is unused....and thus not necessary for the installation process. Adding the possibility to confdigure the second network card would add quite some bloat to the network configuration step...requiring to build something like a state machine recording which card has been configured, and build it around the current system. With the incredibly scarce "resources" currently really contributing to D-I, I really fail to see how this can happen.
