I am interested in that and got cdebconf to install on a chroot to hack on it.
Unfortunatelly I had no success trying to use d-i on bochs yet -- at least
I could not get past some stage, but loading the gtk frontend is still
something I have to investigate how to do. I have worked on porting
the gnome frontend for debconf to debian from progeny and then to
gnome2, so I now some of the basics already.

The current UI is quite poor and the code is a bit messy, but I think I
can get along, and try to grasp d-i in runtime =D.

You can check some progress on the boolean dialog by looking:


Should I request the account now so that I can use the CVS directly
or should I set up my own CVS?

Also, while googling I found this email which brings up some problems
which seem to not yet be fixed and I may not be able to tackle them 
myself, so I still need help:
