-- Package-specific info:

Boot method: CD
Image version: businesscard
               Daily build #7 for powerpc, using installer build from sid
               This build finished at Fri May 21 22:25:32 UTC 2010.

I recently installed an AMD64 box from a sid_d-i businesscard CD in "expert" mode.
It asked me some questions that I didn't remember seeing on my PowerPC installations.

In particular, it asked me to chose a distribution (Lenny, Squeeze, Sid) and whether
I wanted to use non-free repositories.

I just did an "expert" mode install from the latest businesscard CD
on a PowerMac G4, just to be sure, and it did *not* ask me any such questions.

Is there some fundamental difference bewteen the two architectures that makes
this difference necessary?
