Hi Mathias, thanks for the response. This now leaves me with two questions:

1. Why do the 8.04 preseed docs include this information then? It's very 
2. Could you expound on what you mean by a network install? I currently 
do a netboot then grab all my packages from a mirror. Are you saying to 
use the netboot portion from intrepid, but point my mirror at the hardy 
target? This won't cause any problems?
