the country gets asked for the timezone as tzconfig depends on
Gordon, do you think you could try that?
I removed localechooser from the installer image by adding
'localechooser -' to pkg-lists/netboot/arm/ixp4xx.cfg and confirmed
that initrd/usr/bin/localechooser no longer existed in the installer
initrd. However, the preseed.cfg file that exists/is created in the
root directory of the installer, still contains a selected country,
and therefore the time zone menu still only gives me US time zones
from which to select.
~ # cat preseed.cfg
# Preseed file to make d-i download udebs from unstable, useful for daily

How do I tell the installer not add a preselected country to preseed.cfg ?
