Bug#512398: debian-installer: Debian Install CD should have an skip CD-boot option as for example in SuSE

Package: debian-installer
Version: 20081029 and others
Severity: wishlist

Hi debian-installer Maintainers,

It would be great to have an option to skip the CD boot integrated - `Boot from hard disk`
As working for an ISP I often have to go down to the BIOS and change the boot order with an 
Debian GNU/Linux CD in drive in a Lights Out Environment. 
I'm unsure if a 60 sec timeout to boot from harddisk as in SuSE may be cool, but at least 
an option to do this would be a great comfort.

Best regards, Jan Rasche
