 (-:  I feel happy  :-)

a posting from today http://lists.debian.org/debian-boot/2007/05/msg00657.html
starts with:

 I have just finished setting up a preseeded d-i for some servers at
 work, and I'm in general very impressed. One thing which I found missing
 was a way to do more complicated partitioning via preseeding. What we
 wanted was a 2 or 4 disk raid used as the PV for an LVM containing all
 the partitions, with /boot on a 2 disk raid. This is not currently
 possible with pure preseeding, so I wrote a udeb which replaces
 partman-base in the menu and runs a script in it's postinst to do all
 the partitioning, formatting and mounting etc.
