    Default Please don't remove expert mode

    Just saying, I know it's "hidden" with 9.3.1, and it took me a bit of time to figure out how to use it. But please don't remove that script from support in the future.

    It's critical that I'm able to define a partition structure with another tool, and simply ask Debian to use this or that for partitions. I can't do this in normal mode. If this script is removed I'll be forced to install Untangle, and use tools to modify the partition structure to match my deployment environments. It isn't particularly hard, but it's a massive time sink.

    So I guess if you want to hurt the competition from one of your partners, you now have a magic bullet.

    We aren't going to remove it. You just need to hit e and change it to "expert.preseed"
    Its just been removed as an option because so many experts were choosing bad partitioning schemes and then having problems.

    Thanks Dirk, I just really need those features. I don't mind hiding it, I understand completely.

    On one hand you have the Windows "Experts" that don't understand Linux partitioning, and the other hand you have the Linux "Experts" that think you need /usr /home /var /whatever everywhere.

    Hint to everyone, Untangle wants / and swap, anymore is just plain silly!
