[wishlist] ntfs mount setup from d-i


Recently I was testing lenny rc2 installer on a system with an ntfs
partition. I was able to resize the partition, but was not able to
associate a mount point for that. When I select use this patition, it
does not have an option to chose ntfs.

I was looking for just associating the ntfs partition with a mount
point (which I can do if I have partions with ext2, ext3 ...).

Is ntfs-3g installed by default? If not can we install it if we detect
ntfs? Recently I had to support (remotely) a user with ntfs partitions
and it was not a pleasant experience as he was comepletely new to
command line. I think it is a pretty wide spread case to be able to
support it.
