Package: debian-installer
Version: support for diskless (=> nfs) install
Severity: wishlist


It would be nice if support for installing on an nfs-rootfs would be
supported. That way one could have /boot on, say, a flashdisk (or a
cdrom) and then continue the boot from an nfs-share.

There are two bugs merged here but neither is actually supportable in DI.

The use case for each is just too small - there are many other ways of
creating an NFS depending on a range of other factors outside DI.
