Bug#231222: debian-installer: assumes color ansi serial console

Package: debian-installer
Severity: normal
Tags: sarge sid d-i

debian-installer does not prompt for terminal type when installing
from a serial console, and apparently assumes an 80x24 color ansi
termianl.  While only the size is incorrect in the cases I have
tested, (it looks a bit stupid to only use a small portion of the
screen) this assumption could make d-i unusable on some systems.

Serial consoles are not uncommon on sparc systems.
