Re: "kickstart" for debian needed


you need only the Base-Installation then install all programms needed 
and after ths make a

dpkg --get-selections >myselection.txt

Now you can install on other machines the Base-Installation and at the 
end quiet it withot any selections. Login as root and make

newmachine:# dpkg --set-selections myselection.txt

now use dselect to install it.
