How about pre-selecting a more common installation profile for the
squeeze release? My preference would be: Standalone Workstation.

I like the idea so much I implemented it in the summer of 2010.  When
installing on a non-laptop computer in a network without a main-server
present, the default will be like you describe it.  When doing the
same in a network with a main-server present, the default will be
workstation for non-laptop machines with only one network interface,
and thin-client-server for non-laptop machines with more than one
network interface.  For laptops, the default is standalone when
installing without a main-server present, and roaming workstation when
a main-server is present.

I welcome input on how the dynamic selection of default values is
working.  To see how it work in detail check out
debian-edu-install/debian-edu-profile.

That is really really awesome stuff! What is the default for VirtualBox installation? The profile that gets pre-selected is

  main-server
  workstation
  ltsp-server

Is that coincidence? Or does it happen non-deliberately? Should we detect VirtualBox installations and offer some other default than the above?

Mike
