"However, it is possible to get debian-installer to install a KDE
desktop environment instead of GNOME by using preseeding (see Section
B.4.10, “Package selection”) or by adding the parameter desktop=kde at
the boot prompt when starting the installer."

I do not think it is user-friendly... It is not much better than
"apt-get install kde" after standart system setup...

IMHO, if you are creating graphical installer, then all important
questions should be asked in graphical mode... What DE to setup is an
important question, I think...

I still would like to keep this wish request, changing it from "not
possible to install", to "not possible to change DE from installer
dialog windows"
