Thanks. However, looking at it again I still don't think the added complexity really weighs up against what it achieves. For Etch it was much more relevant as it really changed the user experience when hitting enter and there was no guidance on how to select the graphical installer. But now that a clear menu is displayed for the user I really feel it's redundant. We did consider changing the default for Lenny to the graphical installer. I started a discussion about it on the d-boot list , but there was insufficient real response to the proposal to motivate me to push it through. I also wasn't 100% happy with the patch. Expect an upload of d-cd soon. Cheers, FJP  http://lists.debian.org/debian-boot/2008/09/msg00468.html http://lists.debian.org/debian-boot/2008/09/msg00935.html
