What you need to do is checkout a copy of the d-i subversion repository.

Well I don't have subversion, but I saw this link:

You can get hold of Subversion packages for woody here:


I have a machine on ADSL I can hack on, but it runs woody and must stay on woody.

Use an unstable chroot, if you can.

It's a bit short of disk, and it hangs when I try to use the 120 Gbyte WD drive I put in it:-((

The most serious problem I want to circumvent is the default internet site it installs from. I _can_ get round that one with a transparent proxy firewall rule and configuring Apache as a proxy: I did that once before (for RHL) and it worked a treat.

I was hoping d-i waa a bit easier to configure than it seems.
