Speaking of which, how do you automate debian installs ala kickstart for rh 
and mdk?  I'm trying to convert the other admin's here from mdk8 to debian, 
but am having a hard time finding any documentation on how you would get the 
install process down to basically "here's the floppy, it will load you over 
the network and setup your config settings", which we have in place for 
mandrake.  And hints/tips/pointers welcome, as by-hand installs *quickly* 
wear thin :-)
