The pcmcia modules are not installed by  default, because only laptops
need them. But I guess they don't hurt on desktop machine, so we might
consider to install them by default. What do you think?

Don't know if it's possible to "recommend" a fs with the current d-i.

9 entries  for 1   partition   only? sounds  strange.. I'm  Ccing  the
debian-boot list, especially for this.

Defaults were present in the  beta, but I had  to remove them due to a
bug in tasksel, which should have been fixed now (thanks Joey):


I'll test them again.
