Bug#283193: disk-detect udeb needed

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

Experience shows that we need a udeb that uses discover/whatever to find
disk drives, then checks to make sure a disk was found, and if not, lets
the user choose a module from a list of disk drivers, as in ethdetect.

Since we don't have this, currently when the installer fails to find a
disk, the user is stuck in partman, unless they know how to modprobe
modules in the shell.

Dealing with NFS mounting should be taken into account when designing
this (assuming the rest of the installer will eventually support NFS

This is, unfortunatly, a post-sarge issue.
