Bug#517114: more info

retitle 517114 please enable the prompt to enter preseeding url
severity 517114 normal

After more testing and a few chats on IRC, the aim of this bug report
is actually to re-enable the prompt so that when Automatic Install is
selected without editing the boot command line, the user is prompted
for the url of the pre-seeding file.

This is a far more convenient way to use pre-seeding, especially for
distributions like Emdebian Grip where pre-seeding is essential to
allow d-i to adapt to Emdebian modifications.

It was present in the daily builds before rc2 but was, apparently,
dropped from the final release code due to a regression related to
DHCP. It would be a significant enhancement to Emdebian if the prompt
could be reinstated for Debian 5.0.1.
