I want a small CD with few custom packages, which installs silently.
I have appended preseed/file=/cdrom/preseed in isolinux.cfg .

As I understood I am to load udeb with netcfg-static to setup network configuration manually. With that line I just select additional d-i components, namely, netcfg-static. One can install once manually and then see debconf-get-selections --installer results. I got it from there.
But for me it even would be better if I could skip network configuration during installation at all.. neither dhcp, nor static.
btw It was said that there is a bug #282650 about incorrect preseeding gateway.
