The question about using DHCP or not is shown at medium priority by
the netcfg package. Try by booting with the "DEBCONF_PRIORITY=medium"
The automatic use of DHCP only happens on default installs (high
priority). Fallback to static networking happens anyway if DHCP fails.
I think this design choice has been widely debated so I tag this as
wontfix, but leave this bug opened in case others disagree.
