I like the document, thx for this.
For the different architecture, I can test it on ppc on a regular basis.
About server/desktop distinction, I think the default (suggested) packages
installed does matter.
But before this distinction, I'd like your input about the global direction of
the installer :
- should it be minimalist : partitioning, network, install X if desktop
oriented, and reboot. At first boot, have configuration tools + software
manager (to install stuff) displayed. This is what I'd prefer, because there
is no duplication, and you could call the config step after install.
- should it be complete : partitioning, network, different installation groups,
full config (net, users, security, server packages, printing, sound, ...)
I think it's interesting to think about that now
