so far it works really well, I just have two questions. I think you can answer those real quick.

1) debconf debconf/frontend        select  Dialog
Can I set it to something like "Noninteractive"? Otherwise the installer complains about it, because I'm doing unattended installations

2) After the base installation, the /etc/apt/source.list is set to stable, but I'm installing sarge. 
As a result I'm getting conflicts with the newer packages from the base installation.

those are my current settings

d-i     mirror/http/directory   string  /debian/
d-i     mirror/http/countries   select  US
d-i     mirror/http/proxy       string
d-i     mirror/http/hostname    string  ftp.egr.msu.edu
d-i     mirror/http/mirror      select  ftp.egr.msu.edu

d-i     mirror/ftp/directory    string  /debian/
d-i     mirror/ftp/countries    select  US
d-i     mirror/ftp/proxy        string
d-i     mirror/ftp/hostname     string  ftp.egr.msu.edu
d-i     mirror/ftp/mirror       select  ftp.egr.msu.edu

d-i     mirror/suite    select  testing

d-i     mirror/protocol select  ftp
d-i     mirror/country  string  US

base-config  apt-setup/uri_type         select ftp
base-config  apt-setup/country          select enter information manually
base-config  apt-setup/hostname         string ftp.egr.msu.edu
base-config  apt-setup/directory        string /debian
base-config  apt-setup/another          boolean false
base-config  apt-setup/non-free         boolean false
base-config  apt-setup/contrib          boolean true
base-config  apt-setup/security-updates boolean true

There is probably a base-config option where I can select the suite.

Thanks in advance!
