I suppose you could call debootstrap as a command in the preseed file but it's difficult to see why that would be useful. The preseed file supplies options to the Debian installer and if you're using that then why would you need debootstrap?

If you want a scripted installation then just write a script that uses debootstrap.

I don't understand. A preseed file is used to automate the Debian installer so why would you need debootstrap?

Get somebody else to do it for you.

What is it you are actually trying to achieve here? Why is the standard Debian installer with a preseed file not a satisfactory solution for you?
