not pretty.... I have mixed feelings about this sort of a thing. For
situations like the eeepc build, where there are 4 variants with minor
differences between them, its easy and functional ( using this sort of a
copy + fit script ).
But for use on a more generic media that might get used on $random+1
machines, I dont think this is a good solution at all. One could
potentially start writing a UI around this script; that asks the basic
questions and passes them in, but then at what stage do you stop ? since
thats essentially what an installer would do in the first place.

running machine.... </blink>
