Thanks for keeping me in CC, I am indeed not subscribed.
Now I've also seen Frans' comment in ML archives.

At no point was the country selection removed ? I really don't
remember seeing that during my qnap install.
However I had it during all the previous debian install I made on
normal desktops/laptops.

Maybe I should first try a normal squeeze install cd and see if I've
any problems with that. Though I won't be sure I get exactly the same
version than with the qnap install.

And unfortunately I cannot reinstall on the qnap, I've already a fully
working and configured system that is in use. and I cannot just ran
the installer again there, I would need to re-flash it and probably
lose everything.
