Well, then define OEM in this context....This acronym is used  in each
and every possible situation and nearly means nothing nowadays. So ? I
dont' think we lose any information by being more explicit.

I'm not talking about he mtnu item priority, I'm talking about the
driver-injection-disk/load template priority, in :

bubulle@mykerinos:~/src/debian/debian-installer/packages/hw-detect/debian> more ../driver-injection-disk.sh 
                db_input high driver-injection-disk/load || true

s/high/medium is what I propose.
