I would very much like to see an automated installation method for
Debian. I suggest that people check out Red Hat's "kickstart" method,
which requires little more than preparing a plain text file describing
the desired system.
I can send copies of the Red Hat documentation file README.ks to
anyone who is interested. (It's a bit long to post.)
One anomaly: they seem to assume the computer only has one hard disk.
At least I don't see any mention of volume names.
