Re: How to preseed.cfg with official installation cdrom

Therefore I downloaded and burned a cd-image from the official server. Please note: This is not a case of a mastered cd, I speak of. Given I found a preseed.cfg, which I put in a parallel partition on the hd, ready to be loaded into the installation routine.

Hi once more,
Ps: If it comes out that this feature for some reason or the other is not "covered", to say it is not implemented.
The Howto does not mention it explicitly: So keeping silence should insinuate: Docs say it is not there. Right?
 I would, however, opt to care for its implementation instead. 
So: as well points for the question of 1) wish or 2)effort of the implementation of this feature are welcome.
