Re: HELP: debian installer preseed network configuration.

Thank you so much for your suggestion, Bob.

Yes, I am using Ubuntu, I asked a similar question at ubuntu community but nobody response, it looks like few of active Ubuntu users are interesting for this topic. I also noticed that most of great posts about how to preseed an ubuntu system are based on Debian preseed mechanism,  so I thought this question maybe has already solved at debian community, that is why I come here.  

No mater what system, I am wondering has somebody successfully assigned a static IP address with preseed "d-i netcfg" ? 
Much appreciated if someone can give me a hint.

Oops!  You sent this to debian-user instead of ubuntu-user!  But you
are installing Ubuntu.

Since you are trying to install Ubuntu I would send this to the
ubuntu-users@lists.ubuntu.com mailing list.

I think you are better off using dhcp in the installer.  It is much

Try installing Debian Wheezy.  It is very near release.  Download the
Debian 'netinst' image from this page and give it a go!


Good luck!
