Yeah, that's what I meant.

If you can do so with existing ISOs, good. We have had to add ask
Fedora in the past to fetch packages from internet instead of CDROM in
the past so this could be useful in other places too.

What was the exact issue? Did you check if its just one of these
params or all of them that must be passed? If they all must be passed,
did you check if it has something to do with any of these missing from
the script?

If we must pass these, we shouldn't set these from script then (if
Debian allows that at least).
