I am trying to work on Automation installation. As for that i create a preseed on Ubuntu 12.04. And lucky its working perfect. But i want it more smarter. Like in pre-install script i mentioned tasksel for Ubuntu-desktop installation. But i want to install more packages. For that i mentioned these packages in pkgsel.

But my question is that, can i add these packages (pkgsel) into tasksel Ubuntu-desktop. So i have to make only one entry for all packages.

In simple word's, i want to know: 1. How to create tasksel group. 2. How to add and del package from tasksel group.

Any suggestion will be really helpful.

Thanks in Advance.
