i think we covered some of this in irc already...

that's the default value fo the ltsp-client-builder/build-client-opts
debconf question. you'll need to preseed netinst and PXE installs

also set ltsp-client-builder/use_cdrom=false

clearly that's the proper way to handle it, but i spent several hours
trying to figure this out, and really got nowhere on it.

there are a *huge* number of debconf questions involving mirror
selection, and it seems like some of them are re-used for adding
additional mirrors, so it is very difficult to figure out.

if someone can figure that out, i'd really appreciate it, and try and
get it into lenny's ltsp.

live well,
