I've been approaching this as a sort-of-integrator point of view (I've
been working on systems I've been giving away, and have been developing
automation for the installation process that happens after
debian-installer, and will be moving that to using debian-installer
once I have figured out what I need.  The results of this will probably
be in lenny+1, but in the meantime I've got a post-install setup that
lets me install a 'standard' system, and then run the post-install and
end up with what I want) rather than dd point-of-view (because I'm not,
et).  In any event if there is already a nice summary of what needs
doing, and any tips on how to do it, I'm game to work on it for lenny+1.

I'd still like to see the debian menu as the main menu for lenny
though ... though I may be the only one.

And that's my crabbing done for the day.  Got it out of the way early, 
now I have the rest of the afternoon to sniff fragrant tea-roses or 
strangle cute bunnies or something.   -- Michael Devore
