I would like to be able to configure debian-installer to log messages to a

installation is complete but it would be convenient for me to be able to
monitor netbooted clients as they are installed.
This is an interesting consideration, but as Christian pointed out, this
would probably need to be a new d-i inclusion by someone interested
enough to hack on and maintain such a feature. However, since I've done
a few preseeded remote installs, I think you might be able to work
with the existing network-console and perhaps include your own syslog
configuration and service restart via a preseed early_command script.
Just a couple thoughts.
