I haven't seen Debian's installer require you to do this, ever, even on
Perhaps booting with DEBCONF_PRIORITY=low or setting that option in the
installer fixes this problem.
FWIW, sometimes the "it has to be free" attitude of Debian gets annoying
or in the way, but when they have their shit together, they seem to
make a damn fine OS.
