Bug#403195: installation: Finnish timezone not selected by the etch installer

The long term solution is to somehow make the country/timezone
selection available after the net is brought up.

Anyway, this is documented on

"After the installation, you need to configure your timezone because a
default value was chosen for this during the installation. You can do
this with the tzconfig command. Apart from this, your new Debian
system is fully configured."

How about skipping the dialog entirely if the timezone isn't set? It's just confusing having it there at the moment (confused both me and the original reporter). Or at least having it say 'Defaulting to UTC, you need to set timezone manually' or similar.

Andorra seems just like an odd default to me...
