Automating installations using preseeding in Debian Installer

An introduction to how installing Debian can be automated using "preseeding".

The talk will give some background information on how preseeding is basically just making use of the debconf protocol, which preseeding methods are available, and how to create a preconfiguration file. Some potential problems and current limitations of using preseeding will be discussed as well.
