Did you perform an expert install? IIRC, points 2) and 3) can be
bypassed :-?

Just to add to this, if you don't have reverse resolution setup for your
dns server, and the ip doesn't match an entry, then yes, it'll ask for
this. Even if it finds a valid name, it will populate the dialog with
this name so that you may confirm.


I wouldn't want to skip this step IMHO.


issue 2 : during clock setup, it tries to connect to network time
server, how can i avoid this ?

issue 3 : during installation of base system, it takes a long time to
configure apt. i did check console [ alt+f4 ] and found out that it
tries to connect to security.debian.org. how to restrict this behaviour
?
