Bug Description

Binary package hint: debian-installer

When doing a LAN install using the hardy-alternate-i386.iso (my cd-rom drive is busted), There is no option to install the KDE Desktop.
The only options are:
  [ ] Mail Server
  [ ] OpenSSH server
  [ ] Print server
  [ ] Samba File server
I had the same problem with the previous alpha release.
The option is however available when installing directly from the .iso to a virtual-box VM (ie. booting from the mounted iso)
This problem seems to be specific to the kubuntu-kde4 images, because I have been able to install the kubuntu (KDE3) images via the LAN.
I have attached the syslog debug log created during the install.

kubuntu-kde4 is still in universe, and unfortunately there's no way to install tasks from universe in network installs. We should come up with some way to force this.
