ummm ... i forgot one thing ...
i'm already using an ubuntu-express like installer in my project, that
is an hack of the guadalinex liveinstaller (same source), i needed to

---> gtkmozembed <------
that cames with python-gnome2-extras for two reasons:
1) it's "buggy" in dapper (segfault)
2) it's gnome stuff
