Bug#413649: debian-installer-manual: Appendix D.3 should mention how to set password and ssh

Package: debian-installer-manual
Severity: minor

Hi !

When doing a remote installation using appendix D.3, we could add this
in paragraph D.3.7. :

If you do a remote installation, do not forget to install a SSH server:

aptitude install ssh

And don't forget to set root password:

passwd root

Those two steps are mandatory to be able to connect remotely before
reboot. Maybe we should also advocate the install of fuser to be able
to umount partitions :

 fuser -mk /var
 fuser -mk /home
 fuser -mk /usr
Logoff from the chroot

 umount /mnt/debinst
We are not sure that the host system will do all those steps
(especially for /var, /home, /usr in the chroot).
