Here's another problem that's bugged me to no end: the default entry
in dinstall for choosing one's DNS server has always defaulted to the
localhost being the DNS server. This is pretty ridiculous; 99.9% of
the machines Debian will be installed on will never be running BIND.

Here's a patch to make remote DNS be the default prompt in dinstall.
