Ok, I know this. I make this myself, if somebody ask ... 

Maybe this is not interesting for the other visitors. Maybe the other
visitors thing: bah, this is text, this is the most complicated
installation, ... 

If you make the whole installation yourself, you can explain (and must
not help the install men, IMHO you can't make both the same time) it.
You can show this nice debian installation etc. 

If you use a visitor for the install, this visitor will learn this
trade. But the other visitors?

But we can tray it...

Ok, without gpm, sound etc. (and if you have a nice g-card) the
installation is nice and simpler. 

But maybe we should show things like 
 - pppoeconf
 - pppconf
 - isdnconfig
 - adduser
 - addgroup
and other tasks...

$ dpkg -l| grep "^ii"|wc
   1003    8569   71003

And I have a lot of trash on my system. Normal you get a normal system
on a mirror with 1-2 GB...

Maybe you boot a knoppix and make a dpkg -l ?
