What I don't understand is how come the "Red Hat Installation Program

I gather there has to be much more to an installer than just checking
Please see the ITP. Debian already has a perfectly good installer,
and porting Anaconda itself to Debian would amount to a monumental
project (c/t Progeny). I could have ripped the isomd5sum bits out of
the anaconda tarball and packaged that, but that would have amounted
to a fork, which I didn't see as necessary.
