Direct from d-i hacklab.....

We foudn a small glitch during netcfg....after entering the
IP/Netmask/Gateway/DNS stuff.....and before entering the hostname...you have
a completely bluescreen for a few seconds (I suppose while ifconfig and
stuff are running). This is a bit of stress for people installing. I guess
this is longer on slow machines


We probably should display some kind of progress bar there

This would be a good project for someone looking to get into netcfg... like
the other 'gift' bugs I've filed.

Basically, you just need to put debconf_progress_start/stop calls at the top
of netcfg_activate_static(), and add progress calls as you do each step. 
There shouldn't be much to it at all.
