if you use 'regular' d-i, then regular d-i is what you get, means, you
end up with the same d-i behaviour as on the debian install cds. so no

if you set LH_DEBIAN_INSTALLER=live, then it will use the live-installer
udeb inside d-i, making d-i installing the squashfs to the hd rather
than bootstraping the regular way from .deb packages. however, it is
said that there are still some glitches there and then when using
live-installer, don't expect it working yet but you're encouraged to try
it, and report bugs and send patches.
