I'm not sure, but it should be not a part of the Debian-installer
itself, but after the first reboot, when you have installed the base
system, then the installation process continues asking you about
root/user accounts and all the other stuffs. One question is how you
want to install (better, upgrade?) the other packages: via HTTP, FTP,
Next week I should install Debian on another machine (an IBM ThinkPad
T42p laptop), so if I wasn't clear I can check where it is.

As I wrote on my installation report, I know that I can choose manual

an improvement, but not necessary.

have any problem ;-)
