I doubt that this is specific to the XFS build. base-config tries to
figure out whether the scanned CD is a netinst CD, if so the user should
configure more apt sources. But it's supposed to ask a yes/no question
about this, with an appropriate default based on the type of CD. If that
question is not displayed it would loop back to the choose a method
screen. I thought I had fixed the priority of the yes/no question in
base-config 2.04, but I have not really tested it. I do see at least one
bug in the code, but not one that would prevent the question from being
displayed at all.
