My intent was to install just what was on the CD onto a machine in my

developers. For me, it violates KISS and the Principle of Least
Surprise. I think the d-i needs to be more clear about if/ when it
intends to connect to the Internet, and obtain explicit user approval.
Did you run an expert install? I believe that's one of the questions.
