It's the same problem I have. I've posted a question like that a few
weeks ago.
I currently work on the PingOO ver. 2 (http://www.linuxedu.org).
Its aim is to make a automated distribution for communication server in
educational environnement and now in several public organization.
In Redhat (...sorry) there is kickstart for making automatically
For Debian, I think it's currently in developpment.

This is the method I have done :
I use a configuration file that is called by the scripts of the package
I have modified.
So, when the package is done, you just have to make some apt-get install
and it's all !

But, the problem is that I have to re-make some packages (essentially
network packages).
So, it's to be continued...

ps :
Is it possible to automatized the fdisk for size of partitions ?

Good continuation !
