Clarification of Appendix B of Installation Guide
My long term goal is a "minimal" install -- my precise definition of
"minimal" to be specified.
Constraints when accomplishing this goal:
1. the installer will be on a USB flash drive.
2. the installation target will also be a USB flash drive.
The underlying purpose is having a Debian system available
to any machine capable of booting from a USB flash drive.
This implies installing Grub to MBR of the flash drive.
Section B.4.10. "Package selection" says in part "You can also choose to
install no tasks, ... We recommend always including the standard task."
I need to know what is installed when no tasks are specified
and when the standard task is specified.
Section B.4.11. "Boot loader installation" covers when/where Grub is
installed. I'll always install to _*A*_ MBR. I need to force the
installer to ask which device is target. It is unclear to me.
I note that
says "d-i grub-installer/choose_bootdev select manual". But I do not see
anything similar in Section B.4.11.
