a) choose non-interactive and no debconf questions get asked. You can
dpkg-reconfigure any package you need to
b) supply debconf with the answers ahead of time
c) *eventually* there will be a debconf server(right word?) which network
admins can install. This will have the answers stored in it and then when
boxes need to know an asnwer, they query debconf and it queries the server.
This way, you can do unattended installs of an entire computer lab.
