That's correct, it's just another bootloader, it does not affect d-i's
behavior once booted. And I can't reproduce any issues with the current
gtk netboot installer not asking for a mirror. Unless Brian's network has
dhcp preseeding configured to force it to use a particular mirror, I
can't see how what he describes could have actually happened. From the
report it sounds like Brian may be expecting d-i to ask a second time
for mirror info before running apt, after it's already asked a first
time before downloading d-i components.
