Tip for the installation regarding "broken" gpg debian-installer source

Tip is that because of the expiration of the gpg key for installation (see
http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/News/2007/20070210) a tip is to
pass the boot parameter: debian-installer/allow_unauthenticated=true.

This parameter is listed as part of the preconfig file options in

If the created monolithic image isn't booted with that parameter it will
fail on key validation:
debootstrap: Signature made Wed Mar 14 20:10:18 2007 UTC using DSA key ID
can't check signature: public key not found

However it might need pointing out that installing with that flag is not
good from a security/paranoia perspective :-).

Would appreciate feedback if it was useful info...
