Err, so you are using an ftp:provided preseed file?  Then it is
not surprising that the _network_ configuration questions are not
preseeded and you thus have to confirm the values gotten via dhcp,
since the preseed file can not be fetched via ftp before the network is

To be able to preseed network configuration options, you need to pass
that through the kernel parameters or some locally-available file.

Yes, but that is asked after network configuration, so the pressed can
have happened.

No need to try any more, the explanation is all above.
