dhcp provides both host and domain names.
The questions were asked when priority was not set. They are not
asked with priority=critical. I hope this is the intended behavior.
Can someone provides a preseed partiotion recipe for:
1. 100G hard disk.
2. 50G are used by the first parition, and should not be touched.
3. There is no partition defined for the other 50G. Desired usage
3.1. 1G for a /boot, $lvmignore, fs.
3.2. 49G should be an $lvmok, $defaultignore, for all the other fs.
