Why cfengine and not debconf?  It seems to me that debconf is a
natural for solving these problems.  In fact, there's no reason why
dbootstrap couldn't ultimately be replaced by a debconf script,
leading to a single system for automated (with conf file, network db,
whatever) or manual installation.

In fact, right now I'm looking at debconf'ifying base configuration.

Cool.  I see you're using base2_1.tgz.  Have you looked at
base2_2.tgz?  Let us know if you want to make any effort in merging
your efforts with the boot-floppies effort.
