that sounds wrong -- it does *try* to make the default bootable into linux.
In fact, it should ask you about this. If it didn't, someone else is wrong.
I've added an extra dialog to dbootstrap so if did in fact choose to not do
a default boot into linux it'll give some extra info.
Can you try this once more and confirm it doesn't make it bootable by
