I am having some trouble.
Here is my setup: https://www.ubuntulinux.org/wiki/LocalNetInstall

Here are my mods to pxelinux.cfg/default

label linux
         kernel ubuntu-installer/i386/linux
         append preseed/file=/floppy/preseed.cfg 
languagechooser/language-name=English countrychooser/shortlist=US 
console-keymaps-at/keymap=us initrd=ubuntu-installer/i386/initrd.gz 
ramdisk_size=12890 root=/dev/rd/0 rw --

timeout 50

It does time out in 5 seconds, it does skip the Language and Country 
dialogs, but still asks "[!] Select a keyboard layout".

It does not hit the floppy at all, and big surprise, doesn't respect 
anything in /floppy/preseed.cfg.

Alt-F3 "sometimes" show it trying to load floppy.ko.

I can modprobe floppy; mount -t vfat /dev/fd0 /floppy; 
cat/floppy/preseed.cfg and see the file.  so "that" works.

Any tips?
