What I meant to say was, that after the install has finished, it would be 
nice to have a bit of information about the interfaces that weren't actually
used during the installation.

In my case, the soekris net4801 has 3 ethernet interfaces, of which I used the
first one for the install. However, once the installer completes
/etc/network/interfaces makes no mention of the 2 previously unused interfaces,
even though they were correctly identified during the install.
It would be nice to have e.g. a couple of commented entries for eth1 and eth2
or at least an explanation on what to do to enable the unused interfaces in
/etc/network/interfaces or a similary appropriate location.

Anyway, that's just my 2 cents.

That's not really what I meant, sorry for the confusion. Hopefully I have
clarified what I meant above.

Hmm, should I only submit installation reports when something isn't working?
