Maybe offer the option to load a custom kernel from a floppy or any
other removable device at some moment?

Let's record this as a wishlist bug and reassign it to the relevant
package. Of course, taking care that the loaded kernel is suitable for
use on the installed system would be left to the user.

Choosing between Grub and Lilo is already possible as long as you use
"expert" installs. This choice is not intended as a "standard user"
choice with the assumption that standard user have no clue about what
a bootloader is and what should motivate the choice between two of

Cases where lilo is to be really preferred over Grub are really not
very common, anyway.

Given that your installation was a complete success, I just reassign
the installation report to base-installer so that the wishlist BR for
custom kernels installs is recorded.
