Preseeds are poorly documented. This is a note to myself on how to reproduce an install
sudo apt-get install debconf-utils # It is part of the debconf-utils package.
debconf-get-selections –installer > somefile.txt
debconf-get-selections >> somefile.txt “
So there is a bug in Synergy where if you’ve got a Windows box as a synergy client, and you attempt to rdp/rdesktop to another windows box from that windows-synergy-client box, the Right Shift key doesn’t work.
The following command will map the right shift to the left shift in X and work around this bug:
xmodmap -e “keycode 62 = Shift_L NoSymbol Shift_L NoSymbol Shift_L”
You may want to run xev and make sure your right-shift is keycode 62.

# losetup /dev/loop0 /path/to/diskimage
# fdisk -l /dev/loop0
Disk /dev/sdb: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

suppose you want to mount the partition on sdb2, the offset for that
would be 8225280 * 1045 = 8595417600.
detach the disk image
# losetup -d /dev/loop0
and setup the loop for the partiion
# losetup -o8595417600 /dev/loop0 /path/to/diskimage
and mount it
# mount -t fstype /dev/loop0 /path/to/mountdir
