Package: debian-installer-manual
Severity: wishlist

The trick used by d-i whereby kernel parameters that appear after "--"
are copied into the installed bootloader configuration should be
documented somewhere for the benefit of people doing automatic
installations. It just works for people doing normal installations, but
when you're preseeding you need to know about it so that you can put
kernel parameters in the right place.

   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Update kernel building section to conditionalise some more 2.4 kernel

     compiling disk drivers into the kernel.
   * Document new passwd/root-login setting.
   * Booting a USB stick via a boot floppy is not supported by current
     installer images.
   * Update preseeding docs to use task names, not short descriptions, since

   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Document new preseed/run setting.
