Hi all.  Great work with debian-installer; it has progressed quite a bit
since I last tested it a month or so ago.

I've downloaded the October 5 netinst image from
http://gluck.debian.org/cdimage/testing/netinst/i386/ and run through it
a few times on my laptop.  For the most part things went smoothly.


However, the wireless-tools package was not installed as part of the
installation system.  This made it impossible to set the wireless
network name (SSID), meaning that my machine would connect to either my
neighbors network or my network, depending on some kind of RF conditions
or something.  Ideally, d-i would show a list of available wireless
networks, allowing the user to choose one.  Assuming that's not likely
to happen, the user still needs to be able to manually set a network
