    How do you deal with packages that require input from the user, such as NIS or LDAP or SAMBA, which often prompt you for usernames, port numbers, passwords, server addresses, etc. ?

    Or you can make a dump of all installed packages:
    dpkg –get-selections > packages
    Copy this file to usbstick or somewhere else. After basic installation copy the file to your home dir and issue the following commands:
    dpkg -set-selections < packages
    apt-get dselect-upgrade

    @Mike, Awesome, I meant to look up that command for a while but kept forgetting.

    Ummmm.. you needed a ‘script’ for this? It’s a one-liner!

    “apt-get install -y `grep -v^# ` packages.txt | cut -f1 -d’ ‘”

    Mike; good tip. I keep forgetting how to get the list of packages though 😉
