Could you try to come up with a slighty different wording for this feature in 
future? It is very close to "fully automatic installations", which is FAI, as 
you know, and I fear this will confuse users? maybe "completly automated 
installation" would be fine as well?

Previously you wrote that this might be desireable to switch ppc to this too, 
what's your take on this now?

The pre-rc1 daily floppies booted on my oldworld g3, but the root floppy 
failed with "Ramdisk: Compressed image found at block 0\nNo filesystem could 
mount root, tried cramfs\nKernel panic - not syncing VFS unable to mount root 
fs on unknown-block (1,0)".

I will (hopefully, $work$ is taking most of my time atm) redo my powerpc test 
this week(end) and then immediatly send bug reports this time. On my newworld 
g3 imac, d-i and g-i worked pretty well with only some minor issues, some not 
even d-i related.
