Yes it works, at least with the netinst.iso. I created separate /
and /home directories under qemu-kvm using a 32GB file.

How to enable /home to be mounted at boot time? Currently it is not auto

# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
/dev/hd0s1      /               ext2    defaults        0       1
/dev/hd0s6      /home           ext2    defaults        0       2
/dev/hd0s5      none            swap    sw              0       0
/dev/hd2        /media/cdrom0   iso9660fs noauto          0       0
/dev/fd0        /media/floppy0  fatfs   rw,noauto       0       0
/dev/fd1        /media/floppy1  fatfs   rw,noauto       0       0

Yes, noted. There are also errors printed during creation of the SSH2
ECDSA key:
Failed to flush the nscd cache.
posix_spawn() error=1073741826
same output several times...

Also the random-egd script file should be updated:
insserv: warning: script 'K01random-egd' missing LSB tags and overrides
insserv: warning: script 'random-egd' missing LSB tags and overrides

part is missing!

Nice work!
